Dog attack being investigated
FOLLANSBEE - A dog attack on Oak Alley that led to the deaths of three dogs is under investigation by City Police.

Wellsburg Police were called to assist because the Follansbee police officer on duty was returning from transporting a subject to the Northern Regional Jail.
According to police reports, three people, including the owner of the pitbulls and the owner of the collie, were treated at the scene by the Brooke County Ambulance Service for bites they received while attempting to stop the fight.
