Clinton, MD — Five kids were attacked by an American Bulldog while at a school bus stop Wednesday morning, May 19, 2011. The dog reportedly attacked the kids as they were getting on the bus in the 12300 block of Winbrook Dr., reported WUSA.

Police officers rushed to the scene of the dog attack, where one officer killed the dog to help protect the injured kids.

“I think once he followed that kid on the school bus, and all the kids got excited and hollering, the excitement alone can actually send an animal into another mindset,” said Prince George’s County Animal Management Chief Rodney Taylor to WUSA.

Responding emergency crews rushed five children by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of dog bite injuries. A family member transported the fifth victim to the hospital.

The dog’s owner is yet to be located, but the dog does have a chip and the neighbors have seen him before.

The dog in question is an all white, full grown, American Bulldog.

Investigations are underway.
