Seven dogs entered the grounds of a high school in Matsusaka City early Thursday afternoon, biting five students. Four of the students were taken to hospital with minor injuries, police said.
According to authorities, the dogs were kept by a local farmer as hunting dogs. He told police that he had "set them free to hunt."
The students who were bitten were practicing baseball and soccer at the time. Police managed to capture five of the dogs but two escaped into the nearby mountains.© News reports
