The dog, which apparently slipped out of a home on McConnell Road, attacked at least one child on Monday.

Greensboro, NC -- A pit bull which escaped from a home and bit two children will be put to sleep.

The attack happened on McConnell road around 4:30 pm.

Kelly Carlton, the dog owner's sister, says the animal was inside her brother's home but slipped out the door when she came over for a visit.

"I'm really sorry this happened because no child should be bitten...But this was a family pet and we don't know what happened or why it happened."

Carlton's brother turned the dog over to animal control. Kelly Carlton says her brother is very upset over the incident.

The Guilford County Animal Shelter will keep the dog in quarantine for 10 days and then euthanized the animal. Authorities say the dog has to be put down because after attacking two children it is considered dangerous.

Both children were treated at Moses Cone for their injuries.
