Albany- The Albany State University mascot is making a fast recovery after an attack by a pack of dogs.

On Wednesday morning, the ASU ram, nicknamed Asu was mauled by a pack of dogs. Asu was able to break through the fencing around his cage to escape the dogs. Veterinarian, Ira Roth, who is treating the ram, says the mascot received several puncture wounds and lacerations, but now, he is doing very well.

Dr. Roth adds, "He received several lacerations. Now, he is doing much better. He is drinking and eating."

Dr. Roth says Asu should be released early next week. The Animal Control Department plans to set out humane traps along the Flint River near the campus to control the number of wild dogs that travel in the area.
