At about 6:15 p.m., Police responded to the 1100 block of South 24th Street where there had been reports of a woman being attacked by a dog. When officers arrived, they witnessed the dog violently attacking a woman and were forced to shoot it in order to free her from it's grip.
The victim was rushed to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania for treatment of serious head and neck wounds.
There is no word on the condition of the dog, which was removed from the scene by PACCA officials.
The officer who discharged his weapon was taken to Internal Affairs, as is protocol in all police related shootings.
no breed mentioned but since it was violently shaking it owner and the police had to shoot it to get it to stop, i'm going way out on limb here and say... POODLE.
