In San Francisco, two people had to be hospitalized for dog bite injuries. The individuals were attacked at Golden Gate Park on July 1st at 6:42 AM.
Animal Care and Control officials report that they seized two dogs. However, they believe that only one (an unneutered male pit bull) was connected to the attacks. While trying to catch the pit bull, officers had to fire two shots from their guns and hit the animal in its face. The other dog that was captured was identified as a female shepherd mix.
Bela Martin, the first victim, had to be rushed to San Francisco General Hospital after suffering dog bites to her lower legs. She is reportedly in fair conditions. The second victim, a male in his 40s, had to be taken to UCSF Medical Center. He also sustained bites to his legs.
At this time, a veterinarian is treating the pit bull. The dogs' owners may face civil, criminal and/or administrative charges as all male pit bulls must be neutered in the city.
