75-year-old attacked by pit bull in critical condition after receiving hundreds of stitches

LUNENBURG, Mass. — The 75-year-old man attacked by a dog in Lunenburg remains in critical condition after receiving hundreds of stitches.

Wayne Comeau, the husband of the town’s animal control officer, is currently on a respirator at UMass Memorial in Worcester to rest his lungs.

According to a family member, he also has broken bones on his fingers and hand.

The attack happened on Monday at the couple’s home, which serves as Lunenburg’s animal control facility.

A family member told Boston 25 News Tuesday that it took doctors five hours to stitch up the wounds on Comeau’s body following the attack that lasted for 30 agonizing minutes.

A responding Lunenburg officer shot and killed the pit bull to stop the attack.

That dog came in as a stray on Thursday.
