Seven children were injured by a mixed-breed dog while on their way to school Wednesday morning in Nakatsu, Oita Prefecture.
According to police, a group of about 30 kindergarten and elementary school children were walking along at around 7:40 a.m. when they were attacked by the dog. NTV reported that six boys and one girl, aged 6 to 10, received bite marks on the arms and legs. They were taken to hospital and released later in the day.
Police said the male dog was captured one hour after the attack in a residential area about one kilometer away. It had a red collar on it but police have not yet been able to identify its owner.© Japan Today
