RONKONKOMA - Officials say four women are recovering after they were allegedly attacked by a pit bull at a dog day care center.

Three employees and one customer were attacked last night at the Hounds Town Doggie Day Care in Ronkonkoma.

The facility's owner tells News 12 Long Island, that an employee let the dog out of the cage to go to the bathroom when it attacked the employees.

Police say a customer inside the facility saw on a TV monitor what was happening to the three female employees and went back to try to help. That's when she was attacked as well. Owner Michael Gould says it was an unprovoked attack from an unpredictable dog. Gould says the pit bull had been at the facility for about two weeks, getting obedience training. The dog is waiting to be picked up by the town who will decide what to do with him.
