[UPDATE 12:15 a.m.] Men Attacked by Dog, Air Ambulance Requested
A little before 11 p.m. Saturday night, emergency services were told that two men were attacked by a dog in the Nob Hill area of Shelter Cove. An air ambulance was requested by medical but the service declined due to cloudy weather in the area.
Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies are on their way from Eureka but as of approximately 11:35 p.m. they were only a little south of Weott. It should take at least another hour for the deputies to get from Weott to Shelter Cove. Some nights there are no deputies stationed in Southern Humboldt. This appears to be one of those nights.
UPDATE 12:15 a.m.: The two victims are being transported to Redwood Memorial Hospital. The deputy who was en route now is turning back to Redwood Memorial Hospital to gather information on what occurred.
