Pitbull Attack Sends Woman to Hospital

A woman was rushed to Harborview this morning after she was apparently attacked by a pitbull near the Beacon Hill playground at 14th Ave S and S Holgate.

Medics on scene said the 65-year-old woman sustained “pretty serious bite marks” to her calves in the attack.


Update: SPD spokesman Jeff Kappel says the women were checking on a property they own when they were attacked by the dog.

Police “corralled the dog” in the house until animal control could come and take the dog.

Police are still looking for the dog’s owner.

Keppel says the woman sustained “non-life-threatening injuries.”
