Pit Bull Attacks Woman as She Disciplines Child

A woman disciplining a child for breaking a glass was attacked by her boyfriend's pit bull.

Caddo Parish sheriff's deputies say the woman stabbed the dog, and two neighbors alerted to the commotion helped subdue the animal by beating it with a pipe and a board.

Deputies say the dog will be euthanized because of the viciousness of the attack and the extent of its wounds.

Caddo sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick said 27-year-old Kathryn Long suffered severe dog bites to her arm and buttocks and had to be hospitalized.

The incident happened Tuesday at a home just outside of Blanchard.
