HEMET CA - 2 LOOSE PIT BULLS ATTACKED A WOMAN AND HER DACHSHUND - THE DACHSHUND WAS KILLED
UPDATE: A WOMAN WHO HAD HEARD OF THE ATTACK SPOTTED THE OTHER PIT BULL AND COAXED IT INTO HER GARAGE AND CALLED AUTHORITIES.
A woman was attacked and her beloved pet dachshund was killed by 2 loose PIT BULLS in the parking lot of the Seven Hills golf course on Pepper Tree Drive on Monday night. The woman was treated at a local emergency room for puncture wounds, scrapes and abrasions. One of the Pit Bulls was captured and the other ran off and the owners have not come forward.
The attack came on the eve of a decision by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to instruct County staff members to draft an ordinance requiring that Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes be spayed and neutered.
ON FEBRUARY 8, A 91-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS KILLED BY 2 PIT BULLS IN A HEMET MOTEL ROOM. ON MARCH 5, A 76-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS SEVERELY MAULED BY A PIT BULL WHILE WALKING.
