HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A 12-year-old boy has been released from the hospital after he was attacked by two dogs Wednesday in the Deer Park Community in Hancock County, according to the Hancock County Sheriff's Department.

Chief Deputy Don Bass confirmed the boy was riding his bike on Karley Drive when the two dogs
attacked him. Bass said the boy used his bike to protect himself, however, the dogs still managed to bite his legs.

On Thursday the dogs were picked up at their owner's home by Hancock County Animal Control Officer Collin Freeman, Bass said.

Bass said the dogs are undergoing a 10-day confinement at the Hancock County Animal Shelter. He said the dogs will be monitored for rabies and aggression. A Hancock County Animal Shelter official said the two dogs are boxers.

No charges have been filed at this time. The case remains under investigation.
