SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Santa Fe police say charges will be filed in a dog mauling case that left a disabled woman injured and her Chihuahua dead.
Police Sgt. Andrea Dobyns tells the [auth] Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/TFubpc) that the charges could include keeping vicious animals and allowing animals to run at large.
Anne Stills says she was attacked by the pit bull terriers Tuesday as she was walking her dog.
The 62-year-old Stills was treated for multiple puncture wounds on her thigh, elbow and hand. Her long-haired Chihuahua, Lillie, didn’t survive.
Police have released pictures of the pit bulls but have not identified the owner. Dobyns says the dogs’ owner had been cited before for dog problems.
The pit bulls are being held in quarantine at a local shelter.
