The City Council unanimously ordered the humane destruction of a pit bull accused of three attacks on people.
The year-old dog was accused of twice attacking Daphney Clarke, 53, who monitors a dewatering well near the dog owner's home for the Abalone Cove Landslide Abatement District.
In the first attack on, Feb. 4, the dog bit Clarke's right thigh, ripping her pants and bruising her leg, she told the council on Tuesday. She immediately complained to city officials, who persuaded the dog owner, Leonard Miller, to find the dog another home outside the city. Miller took the dog to his family's business in Gardena.
On June 17, however, the dog was back at the Miller home and attacked Clarke as she walked to the well from her car, she said. Miller called the dog, preventing it from hurting the woman.
