MURRIETA CA - A PIT BULL/MASTIFF MIX ATTACKS 2 PEOPLE - THE 80-YEAR-OLD VICTIM IS IN VERY SERIOUS CONDITION
A large dog said to be a PIT BULL/MASTIFF MIX mauled an 80-year-old man leaving him with serious injuries and also bit another man. Stories are somewhat conflicting and comments to these stories are providing more information. The attack happened around 9:30am Friday in the 39000 block of Salinas Drive in the unincorporated community of French Valley. An air-conditioning repairman was the first target of the 90-pound dog. Then the dog went after the owner's 80-year-old father who was bit in the stomach, both arms, PUNCTURING ARTERIES, and on the back of one of his knees.
A sheriff's deputy arrived and because the dog would not let go, he opened fire shooting multiple rounds stricking the dog 2 times. The dog did not die but ran off and was found a couple of blocks away. Animal control seized the animal and it was put down.
