Police Kill Dog Which Attacked Woman

SHELTON, Conn. (AP) _ Shelton police say they were forced to shoot a kill pit bull after it attacked a woman outside an office building.

Police shot the dog Wednesday in a wooded area where it had been seen Tuesday night several hours after the attack.

Officers say they had to put the dog down because it was acting aggressively.

The woman told police she was getting into her car shortly before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when the dog attacked her. She says the pit bull bit her right arm several times and bit her leg. She is recovering after being treated at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Police took the dog to a veterinarian, who discovered an implanted microchip. Authorities say they’re trying to determine who owns the dog through information in the chip.
