Dogs seized after attack
Enid officers impounded three pit bull terriers Saturday after a woman and her 2-year-old daughter were attacked. Enid police officials said Rhonda Morgan, 41, was in her front yard with her daughter when she saw the two dogs charging. A police report states that as the dogs mauled the woman, a third attacked. An officer turned on lights and siren to try to drive the dogs away. All three were recovered. The dogs belonged to two separate owners, officials said.
