A Secret Service agent walking his dog in Washington D.C. was mauled by a loose canine,  and suffered serious bites to his arm.

The Washington Post reports it’s just the latest of a spate of residents attacked by vicious dogs in the area.

Agent Ross Yerger, 44, said he was walking his large dog Sunday when a loose canine attacked his pet.

Yerger was scheduled to be on duty with Hillary Clinton this week but couldn’t because he’s receiving rabies shots and is on sick leave for two weeks.

Wearing a hot pink bandage on his arm, Yerger spoke about the attack to an Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting at the Fort Stevens Recreation Center on Tuesday night.
