Mount Baker Man and Dog Attacked by Pit Bulls

Comments Off

A man and his dog were attacked in Mount Baker, just outside of Seattle, by two pit bulls. They were out for a walk when the dogs attacked them. Both of the pit bulls were found and are at the Seattle Animal Shelter.

No decision has been made on whether the dogs will be euthanized. The dogs’ owner, a woman, could face up to a $1,000 fine and criminal charges in connection with the attack, Jordan said.

Walston’s injuries were minor, but his “Schnoodle” — a mixed poodle and schnauzer he and his wife had nicknamed “Maggie” — died shortly after the attack.

Animal control officers were at the scene quickly after the attack. The neighborhood is puzzled about why the police department did not respond to the 911 calls made. Many neighbors witnessed the attack and rushed to help.
