SAN FRANCISCO — Police shot and killed a pit bull early Saturday after it attacked a woman and her dog.
The woman, whose name was not released, was walking her Akita past a neighbor's house when a pit bull jumped a backyard fence and attacked her and her dog. She was treated at San Francisco General Hospital for hand and wrist injuries, according to a Fire Department spokeswoman.
Police shot and killed the pit bull when it lunged at an officer, San Francisco Animal Control Sgt. Judy Choy said.
Choy said the same pit bull had been picked up in January for roaming the neighborhood.
