Satsop Woman Attacked by Roommate’s Pit Bulls
An 81-year-old Satsop-area woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center Monday evening after she was attacked by her roommate’s two pit bulls. According to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s office, the woman was attacked by the two dogs in her own home while the animal’s owner was at the store and suffered injuries to her face, back, arms and leg.
The dogs’ owner shot and killed one of the animals with a .22 caliber rifle following the incident, and the Sheriff’s Office is expected to quarantine the remaining dog for the next 10 days. Chief Deputy Dave Pimentel called the incident “the most severe dog attack I have ever seen.”
