The 5th and 6th graders were in an unfenced yard outside of Willard Intermediate South when the two pit bull mixes started to attack them. Teachers jumped in to try to protect the students, but they were hurt as well.

The Springfield News-Leader says that most of the injuries were not too bad. The newspaper says that three teachers and three students had to go to the hospital because of bites or other injuries. As students ran away from the dogs, chaos broke out, and other students were hurt.

School nurses helped people who were hurt until first responders got there.

Animal control officers told KYTV that one dog had not been vaccinated against rabies and that the owners of the other dog couldn’t show proof that it had been vaccinated. The disease was checked for in both dogs, and the tests came back negative.

The dogs’ owners gave them up on their own. The News Leader says that the dogs were later put down.

On Wednesday, the last day of school before the winter break, the kids had recess inside. The next day, most of the kids went back to school.
