Police officers responded to Palmetto Trail in East Haven on Monday afternoon after 911 calls alerted them to a dog attack. When they responded, they found Tom Kucenski, a resident of the street suffering from several non-life threatening injuries. “The dogs were outside were outside,” said Kucenski. “They came and attacked me. It’s a long backward walk to my house.”
