The Clinton Humane Society brought in a pit bull from a shelter in another state. The first shelter described the dog as a pit bull mix. What is alleged in a lawsuit is that the Clinton Humane Society, in an effort to get people who don't want to adopt pit bulls to adopt pit bulls, changed the dog's listed breed from Pit Bull mix to Lab-Boxer mix.
Sometime after arriving, the dog mauled 15-month-old boy in the face, leaving massive facial wounds.
Gyrion says Lucas Harrison was flown to an Iowa City hospital. He will recover, the chief said, but will need reconstructive surgery for the damage to his face.
