ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Lee County man is now charged after his two dogs viciously attacked a 75-year old man Friday morning.

The dogs are quarantined, and have been ruled to pose a threat to the community.

Charles Holmes was charged with two counts of animals at large, and one count of no rabies vaccination by Lee County animal control.

The two dogs Friday morning attacked 75-year-old Jim Houston while he walked his dog in front of his home on Wicked Court, off Pelham Road.

Officers say Houston suffered more than a dozen bites on his arms, legs, feet and ankles, family members say he is recovering.

Animal control had the two dogs moved from their pens to a vets office, because of their vicious behavior. The owner must now build a special pen, buy insurance to cover them, and pay a yearly bond to keep the dogs, or they must be euthanized the first of the month.
