Seven children suffered minor injuries after they were bitten by a stray dog, believed to be a pit bull, inside a Charlotte, North Carolina elementary school on Monday, according to local police. According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, Animal Care & Control Officers responded to a reported stray dog at the Lansdowne Elementary School in south Charlotte. Police say the dog went onto the school’s playground. While the kids were being taken inside the building, the dog managed to get inside the school. The dog then apparently became overstimulated by several frightened children’s reactions and began to jump and bite them. A teacher was able to control the dog and contacted the owner. Police said the owner of the dog picked it up and left before police arrived at the scene.
