A 75 year old woman had to have her leg amputated due to injuries she suffered from a pitbull dog attack in San Diego. The woman is still being treated in the hospital due to dog bite injuries to her back, legs and arms.
The owners of the pitbull dogs, Carla Cornelio and Alba Cornelio, have been arrested and face felony charges for owning the dogs that caused the serious injury to the woman. The two pitbull dogs were euthanized by the Department of Animal Services.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the dogs had previously attacked another neighbor’s dog and the neighbor, and the Cornelios apparently paid the veterinary bills for that San Diego dog attack.
