The third dog attack in seven days on children in New Orleans required police to use an electroshock
weapon to immobilize the animal.

The Times-Picayune reports that police acted after a pit bull bit a 6-year-old boy in the thigh in eastern New Orleans Tuesday night.

Jeb Tate, a spokesman for New Orleans Emergency Medical Services, says the boy was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

Police spokesman Garry Flot said a Taser and a catch-pole were used to secure the pit bull.

A 5-year-old girl was critically injured after she was attacked by a pit bull a week ago.

Last Thursday, a 7-year-old girl was injured by a pit bull.
