Two “pit bull-type” dogs that attacked a woman on Beacon Hill last week will likely be euthanized this weekend, according to the director of the Seattle Animal Shelter.
The dogs have been under quarantine since biting a woman at Beacon Avenue South and South Cloverdale Street on Sept. 3. The dogs also bit a man and a woman who stepped in to help the 26-year-old victim, Seattle police said.
Don Jordan, shelter director, said Thursday that the dogs, both females, appeared to have been well cared for. But, he said, an owner has not come forward.
“We have to hold them by law for 10 days after the bite. The quarantine period expires on Saturday the 13th. The normal procedure is that dogs that are involved in this kind of injury are euthanized after the quarantine period expires,” Jordan said.
