Man attacked by friend's pit bull

CALIFORNIA -- A man in his 40s was severely bitten by a friend’s pit bull Tuesday as the men were talking outside the dog owner’s home in Mountain View, San Diego police said.

A neighbor on Ocean View Boulevard near 42nd Street call 911 about noon to report the attack, police Officer Mitchell Levy said.

The men were standing at the open gate to the dog owner’s yard when the 1 1/2-year-old pit bull bit the victim’s arm, causing a severe wound, Levy said. The dog also reportedly bit the man’s back and side, causing less serious wounds.

The victim walked home, where paramedics treated him before taking him to a hospital, Levy said. He said the victim did not want his friend prosecuted for the incident, but county animal control officers took the dog for a 10-day quarantine to see if it has rabies.

On Friday, a woman in the Grant Hill neighborhood was bitten by a loose pit bull and a Boxer that attacked her small Shetland sheepdog, authorities said. On the same day, a 1-year-old girl in Chula Vista was nipped on the forehead by a family German shepherd, which was placed in quarantine.

And on June 18, a 75-year-old woman was mauled her neighbor’s two pit bulls that got into her Paradise Hills back yard. Surgeons had to amputate one of the woman’s legs. The dogs were euthanized.
