A woman had to be hospitalized Monday morning after she was attacked and mauled by a neighbor’s dog in the Oakland hills, authorities said.
The extent of the woman’s injuries was not available.
The dog’s owner told animal control officers she would bring the animal to the shelter later Monday for rabies testing and to be euthanized. Authorities described the dog only as a male PIT BULL and didn’t elaborate on its breed.
The attack happened about 9:45 a.m. Monday in the 4800 block of Lowry Road in the East Oakland hills not far from the Chabot Golf Course.
The dog got out of its owner’s house through an open door and attacked the neighbor, officials said.
It was not immediately known if the neighbor was walking on the street or was at her residence.
It was also not known what stopped the dog’s attack.
