HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A man’s daughter was bitten and their dog was killed by another dog that was acting strangely in Hillsborough Saturday afternoon, police said.

The incident happened just before 3 p.m. near 116 Cornelius St., which is U.S. 70 in Hillsborough, according to Hillsborough police.

A man told police his daughter was bitten by a dog which also attacked and killed their family dog, officials said. The daughter suffered an injury that was essentially “a scratch” and was not taken anywhere for medical treatment, police later said.

As of 4 p.m., Hillsborough police said they were following the dog involved in the attack until it could be captured.

Later, police said the owners of the dog were identified and animal control officials returned the dog to them.

The dog did not have rabies, according to Hillsborough police.

Animal control officials are now handling the case, police said.
