Bourne crash; Vicious dog attack; Hyannis ceiling collapse

Owner seriously injured in dog attack
BOURNE - One man was seriously injured after being attacked by his Akita dog in Bourne Thursday evening. Rescuers were called to Millennium Drive in Cataumet shortly before 9:30 PM.
The bite was apparently severe enough to cause a partial amputation of the arm of its owner. Reports from the scene say the dog was put down by police after it turned on an officer. The dog owner was taken to Falmouth Hospital where WHDH-TV reported surgeons believe they will be able to repair the damage. The attack apparently came as the owner tried to break up a fight between his dog and another dog. Further details were not immediately available.
