San Diego, CA - San Diego County animal control officers are looking for a pit bull that mauled a woman walking to her car. The attack happened Tuesday afternoon in North Park on the 42-hundred block of Boundary Street.
Joyce Mulfinger was checking on some rental property when the loose dog suddenly appeared. The pit bull bit Joyce several times on both arms until a man grabbed the dog and disappeared. Joyce was sent to the emergency center.
She tells the local TV station, "He started jumping on me, biting my arms and all I could do was scream for help."Animal control officers scoured the neighborhood but they can't find the pit bull (or the man that disappeared with it) in order to test it for rabies. Harold Holmes, a lieutenant with the San Diego County Department of Animal Services, warns that the dog may still be in the area and that people should remain cautious.
Officers are looking for a tan and white, large-chested pit bull that weighs about 100 pounds and an unknown man. If you have any information, please call animal services at 619-236-2341.
