SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco police are looking for two dogs involved in a fatal pet mauling.
The victim, a 52-year-old woman, says she walking her Chihuahua mix Joey on a leash when two unleashed pit bulls attacked her pet.
It happened Nov. 20 on the 600 block of Brunswick Street at around 4:30 p.m.
Two dogs started running towards her and her Chihuahua mix from across the street.
In an effort to save Joey, the woman picked him up as the dogs attacked.
However, the pit bulls pounced with such velocity that they literally pulled the woman across the pavement as she held on.
The victim sustained minor injuries, but Joey died.
Police say the pit bulls’ owner left the scene without providing contact information and showed little remorse.
The dogs were last seen going east on Lowell Street.
Joey died at the pet hospital.
The first pit bull is described as being brown and white, weighing about 70 pounds, and wearing a pink collar. The second pit bull is brown, about 80 pounds, and wore a gray collar, police said.
If you have any information, you are asked to call police at (415)-575-4444.
