Cocke County man injured in dog attack
The Cocke County Sheriffs Department says two women face charges following the Thursday attack of a 42 year-old Newport resident by three pit bull dogs. Deputy Tim Snapp says he responded to a residence on Thinwood Drive where he found Nikey Gregory, Thinwood Drive standing on the bed of a pickup truck, after he had been bitten on the hand. Two other men were at another truck unable to leave the vehicle because of the aggressive dogs. Two of the dogs had blood running down the sides of their jaws, the officer said. Deputy Snapp went to the home of Trandy Moskalski, 45, on Lawn Way where the front gate was standing open. When he sounded his siren to get the attention of the resident, the three dogs came to his cruiser. That allowed personnel with First Call EMS to reach the injured Gregory and transport him to the Newport Medical Center for treatment. A co-owner of the dogs, Breanna Munyan, 24, Sunshine Way, Newport, was contacted and she came to the scene from her workplace. Both Munyan and Moskalski were cited for Allowing Dogs to Run at Large, and they were told the dogs had to be quarantined for ten days.
