ATLANTA - Animal Control have determined that a dog caught in a trap overnight near the school where a student was attacked was not involved in the incident.

Channel 2’s Darryn Moore went to Carver High School in southeast Atlanta where he spotted a dog trapped in a bait cage Tuesday morning. Officers determined the shepherd-Rottweiler mix was not involved in the attack on 16-year-old Azarius Lowe Monday afternoon. However, they do believe the dog was involved in an different attack on a 13-year-old earlier in the day.

Lowe said he was attacked by a dog when he was walking on the baseball field. The attack forced police to lock down the school for at least 90 minutes as Animal Control workers searched for the dogs.

The teen’s father said the dogs who attacked his son did a lot a of damage.

"He's in pain, he's cut up. He's bit, he's bruised. I mean his eye, bottom line, his face. His ears,” said Arthur Steverson.

 

Animal Control continues to patrol the area of the incident involving Lowe. Traps are also still in place and being monitored.
