PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  A child is in the hospital after being bitten by a pit bull at his home near 35th Avenue & Van Buren.

Paramedics rushed the boy to the hospital for a bite that police described as minor to his temple. The boy did not live at the home, he was visiting a friend.

Two children were playing in the back yard with two pit bulls in the back yard when one of the dogs attacked. The home owners say the dog was a stray that had wandered into the yard.

Neighbors say they've seen the dog there many times in the past in the yard.

The dog was taken to Animal Care & Control where officials say he will likely be put down after an evaluation.
