Arlington pit bull owner faces felony charge after dogs mauled neighbor

49-year-old Terrence Marshall said his neighbor's five pit bull terriers attacked him last month. He required 79 stitches to close his wounds.

Video captured the crime. It shows a man pull over in a white SUV, before getting out and opening the back door, then pulling a dog out of the SUV and leaving it there and driving away.

Police identified Ramiro Zuniga as the suspect in this case. He was arrested and charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals.

The dog, possibly a German Shepherd, was recovered in good condition.
