At least 2 Hermiston families have reported that their beloved pets were mauled by some type of wild animal in the last week.

One of the pets is a 7 year old Pit Bull named Bruiser who sustained some pretty major injuries...

A local Veterinarian believes the Pit Bulls injuries are either from a coyote or bob cat but without actually witnessing the attack it's hard to say.

Bruiser had to have emergency surgery and received several stitches but appears to be on the mend.
