HIDALGO COUNTY - Caleb Gardoza is getting in shape to join the Airforce, but while out jogging on Saturday the unexpected happened. Gardoza was attacked by three unknown dogs.
When Gardoza first spotted the dogs, he stopped running and moved to the other side of the street, trying to avoid them. But when the dogs saw Gardoza, they attacked.
"And that's when the black dog came at me, so then I kind of moved to the side, but it got me in the end," said Caleb Gardoza, Dog Bite Victim.
The dog just scratched Gardoza on the first attack, but when the dog came in to bite for a second time, he hit his target, puncturing Gardoza's leg.
Hidalgo County Animal Control said loose dogs can be seen all across the county. It's a growing problem that Animal Control fights daily.
