SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities in San Francisco say one pit bull has been killed and a second captured after mauling one man and also injuring their owner.
Police say the incident occurred Tuesday night in Golden Gate Park after the dog's owner went to the store and left them with a friend near the park's entrance.
When the owner came back, one of his dogs attacked him.
After animal control and police arrived and could not corral the dogs Tuesday night, officers shot and killed one dog while the other dog ran away.
Animal Control officials say the second dog was captured Wednesday morning near the park. A hearing will be held to determine that dog's fate.
Authorities say the first man attacked is hospitalized in stable condition; the dog's owner refused treatment.
