An elderly woman suffered serious injury to her right arm, on Thursday, when she was attacked by pit bull terrier that had bitten her in the past.
The attack occurred while the victim was visiting the dog owner’s home. It appears the bite was unprovoked whilst the women were chatting in the living room during her visit.
The victim was transported to Memorial Hospital in Santa Rosa by ambulance where she was admitted. Animal Control took possession of the dog taking him to the animal shelter.
The five-year-old pit bull has a prior history of biting and attacking another dog and the same woman.
There was an abatement in place which prohibited the dog from being walked without a leash and muzzle, and stipulated that at all other times he had to be confined to his property.
This marks the second vicious attack in one less than four weeks. On April 29, two Rottweilers attacked a 7-year-old boy who lived across the street from the dogs. The boy, is slowly recovering.
