WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

A man attacked by dogs in Worth County is out of the hospital. 39-year-old Michael Towell has been discharged from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital after he sustained serious wounds to his arms, legs and hands.

Worth County animal control officials say Towell was touring the property of a home off Woodcrest Road when three mixed-breed bulldogs attacked him.

A neighbor shot and killed one of the dogs, the other was taken into custody. Animal control officials say the third dog that ran off has not been found, but they believe it died in the woods from a gunshot wound.

The three dogs, along with four others had been tied up in the back of the house bordering the property that Towell was on.

Officials believe the dogs chewed through their leashes. Charges are pending.
