ASHEVILLE, N.C. – A North Carolina man was attacked by a pack of dogs while mountain biking on a trail.

Marco Liubenov told WLOS that about eight to 10 labradoodles bit him earlier this week in Asheville.

Liubenov said the dogs were being followed by a woman in a van who fled the scene after the incident.

Because he couldn’t speak with the owner, he had to get a rabies vaccination, which has cost him more than $500, according to WLOS. No serious injuries were reported.

Liubenov said the woman should have been more responsible. He said his insurance will not cover the rabies shots.
