Pasadena police kill dog rescue man from attack
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Pasadena police have killed a dog and wounded two others that attacked a bicyclist and trapped him on top of a car.
A police statement says Andrew Ross was walking his bike on a street around 5 a.m. Wednesday when the pit bull mixes charged across the street.
Ross says he tried to use his bike as a shield but one bit his leg, causing minor injuries.
Police say a witness reported seeing the dogs dragging a man.
Ross managed to break free and climbed onto the hood of a parked car.
Police say an arriving officer fired a shotgun as the snarling animals approached, killing one dog. Two wounded dogs fled but were later found and taken for treatment.
Ross declined treatment.
Police haven't found the dogs' owner.
