A local deputy is recovering right now after being attacked by two Pit Bulls this morning.
Authorities tell us Onslow County deputy Dwane Wade was leaving his house on Verona Road for work when he heard his dog barking in the backyard. That's when two Pit Bulls attacked him. Wade was able to free one of his hands and shoot one dog, the other fled.
Wade sustained minor injuries, while his dog is recovering as well.
Right now he's in contact with the owner of the Pit Bulls. There's no word yet on what's going to happen to the two dogs.
