SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The pair of pit bulls that attacked two men in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Tuesday night, prompting police to shoot and kill one of the dogs, had been in the custody of the city last month, San Francisco Animal Care and Control officials said Wednesday.
A black male pit bull named Frisco and a white female pit bull named Cleo allegedly attacked a man around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at a homeless encampment near 25th Avenue and Lincoln Way, animal care officials said.
The man suffered several bites and a second person who tried to intervene was also bitten, police said.
Officers arrived and found one of the pit bulls, Frisco, and fatally shot it. The second dog, Cleo, ran off but was found shortly after 8 a.m. today near Haight and Stanyan streets and was safely captured, animal care officials said.
