SAN JOSE (AP) — Animal control officers have captured one of two pit bulls that viciously attacked a woman in a San Jose neighborhood.

Animal control Sgt. Jay Terrado said to the San Jose Mercury News the pit bull was found roaming the streets Tuesday night, a day after the 41-year-old woman was attacked. It will be quarantined for ten days while officers try to find its owner, and could eventually be euthanized.

The second pit bull remains loose.

Authorities say the woman was attacked by the two dark gray dogs outside her home as she went to get something from her car.

She was treated and released from a hospital for bite wounds to her arm and hip.

Terrado said the captured dog’s owner may face a criminal complaint depending on the animal’s history.
