The pit bull also attacked his owner as he tried to help the woman. According to several witnesses, the owner yelled at her not to enter the garden, because the dog was unleashed. The woman failed to hear the warning. Immediately after the attack, the owner tried to pull the dog away from the woman, but then was attacked as well. The case is now under investigation.
