LOGAN HEIGHTS (CNS) - A man and a boy were bitten by a mother pitbull apparently guarding two puppies Sunday in Logan Heights.
A call came in at 6:56 a.m. of an attack by multiple pitbulls on the 2900 block of Franklin Avenue, a San Diego fire dispatcher said.
"Two people were injured, one a child, the other an adult," the dispatcher said. "Both were taken to Mercy Hospital."
The dispatcher said numerous neighbors witnessed the incident. Police were called in to secure the area before animal control arrived.
"Two 4-month-old puppies got loose and were playing and the mother followed after them," Lt. Kalani Hudson of County of San Diego Department of Animal Services said. "The puppies ran out to interact with two passersby which caused the mother to become aggressive and bite the two passersby, who both received minor injuries."
Hudson said all three dogs were impounded. Neither puppy bit anyone so they will be released to their owners.
"The mother pitbull will be held in quarantine for 10 days to observe for signs of rabies," Hudson said.
Hudson said animal control will consider prior incidents of biting in determining whether further action needs to be taken in the wake of the dog attack.
