Pit Bulls Attack Woman In Front Of San Jose Home

SAN JOSE (BCN) — Two pit bulls attacked a San Jose woman in front of her house Monday night as she was trying to get into her vehicle, a police sergeant said.

One of Susan Zaho’s neighbors called police around 6:20 p.m. to report that two dark gray pit bulls were attacking the 41-year-old woman in front of the home at 3000 Whitesand Drive, Sgt. Ronnie Lopez said.

The neighbor reportedly threw stones at the dogs to try to prevent the attack, he said. The animals ran south on Whitesand Drive.

KCBS’ Matt Bigler Reports:

Zhao suffered major injuries, but they are not life threatening, Lopez said.

Animal control took over the investigation.

Police are warning community members that the dogs have not been captured. They have clipped ears and may have light gray spots, Lopez said.
