Two pit bulls on the loose in a Phoenix neighborhood attacked three people on Tuesday and left a pet dog with injuries so severe the dog was put down.
Suzanne McGee, said she left her 12-year-old schnauzer-Chihuahua mix alone in the front yard of their house for just a few short minutes. Shortly thereafter, she found her dog being viciously attacked by two pit bulls. Her husband quickly attempted to rescue the dog only to be bitten on his face by one of the pit bulls. McGee's 20-year-old son also went to help and unfortunately was bitten on the leg. The pit bulls, apparent strays, ran away.
The pit bulls were ultimately captured shortly thereafter by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control officers who also confirmed that there was a third victim bitten by the same dogs Tuesday. The schnauzer-Chihuahua was ultimately put down because her back was broken in the attack.
