A 63-year-old woman was attacked by at least four tan-colored pit bull terriers Thursday morning. The provocation of the attack is unknown, but a witness driving by spotted the dogs mauling the jogger and attempted to disperse them.

The witness called the police and honked her horn to chase them away. When the police arrived, there was still one dog on the scene. The dog initially ran away, but then came back and attacked the officer as well. He attempted to shoot the dog, but missed and the dog ran off into the desert.

Los Angeles and neighboring cities have been warned to watch out for the dogs. It has been reported that the dogs have attacked people before and have been seen roaming around the city.

The jogger died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital and currently the coroner’s office is looking for cause of death.

It is likely, given the area, that these dogs were dumped by a previous owner. It is unclear currently whether the dogs had collars or identification, but because they look similar it is plausible that they have come from the same place.

Dog bites and attacks obviously can be very serious and even fatal. If this happens to you, or someone that you know, it is helpful to have an attorney on your side. Contact AAG today to find out what rights you deserve as a victim.
