Pit bull bites ‘plug’ out of Macon man’s nose

A Macon man inspecting his fence was seriously injured when he was attacked Monday night and bitten by a neighbor’s pit bull.

On Tuesday, someone at the man’s house on Oakland Hills Drive said the dog bit “a plug” out of the 41-year-old victim’s nose.

The man was said to be recuperating at a city hospital.

A Bibb County Sheriff’s Office report of the incident said that about 9 p.m. Monday, the man was checking nails in his wooden fence in a neighborhood that lies across Williamson Road from Central Georgia Technical College.

That’s when the black-and-white pit bull pounced, the report said.

An animal control officer took the dog. Its owner wasn’t home. A citation was pending for failure to restrain the dog.
