raging pit bull was shot by police in East Boston this afternoon after the beast got loose in the neighborhood and bit a teenager in the buttocks, police report.

The dog was shot on Cottage Street after the attack, police said. A second pit bull that escaped from the same apartment nearby was cornered and taken off the street by animal control, police added.

The dog shot is not dead, Boston police added this evening. Earlier reports of a child bit turned out to be a 14-year-old, police added. Police at the scene tell the Herald the dogs chewed and clawed through a screen inside a first-floor apartment on Sumner Street and escaped mauling a cat and biting the teen.

The teen suffered minor injuries in the attack, police added. Officers on the scene opened fire after one dog was “growling” and not backing down, police added.

As the Herald reported late this summer, hundreds of Bostonians have become human chew toys for powerful pit bulls while the dogs are being abandoned at an alarming rate — just as rules to rein in the controversial canines are set to expire Nov. 1.

There were 226 confirmed pit bull attacks on people between 2008 and 2011, while 40 percent of all dogs that turned up at city shelters were pit bulls, city officials said.
