SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a 28-year-old West Texas man was hospitalized with puncture wounds to his arms and legs after being attacked by five pit bulls while riding his bicycle.

Chief Deputy Dale Pearce of the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office tells the San Angelo Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/1cvkAis ) that the man was attacked Thursday afternoon in the small community of Carlsbad, located about 16 miles northwest of San Angelo.

Pearce says deputies found the owner of one of the dogs but were unable to find the owners of the other four. He says the owner who was tracked down was advised to quarantine the animal.
