    Pitbull Attacks NLB Woman

    (October 19, 2005) -- A NLB woman was bitten and seriously injured by her pet Pitbull dog on Tuesday night (Oct. 18), prompting a response by LBPD, LBFD and LB Animal Control.

    Wesley Moore of LB Animal Control said that shortly after 8:00 p.m., his agency received a call to assist LBFD in the 100 block of South St. after a 23 year old woman was bitten on her face and hand by her dog.

    Paramedics took the woman to a local hospital...and LB Animal Control took the pitbull into custody.

    "We are in the process of investigating the incident and the animal will be held under quarantine for the next ten days," Mr. Moore said.

    Several L.A. TV stations arrived on scene and neighborhood resident Dan Pressburg (who didn't personally witness the attack) commented on camera, expressing sadness at what had taken place.

    It's the second serious reported Pitbull attack in NLB since May 2005 when a gardener trimming trees was attacked by a pitbull that had been chained on a nearby property broke loose, jumped a fence, attacked the gardener and attacked a Labrador retriever who responded to the commotion. (The gardener hit the pitbull on the head with a chain saw; the pitbull continued the attack; the gardener used a second chain saw and struck the dog under the neck; the pitbull broke off the attack and died.)
