LAKE FOREST A 28-year-old woman underwent emergency surgery Tuesday after she was bitten in the jaw by a neighbor’s pit bull, police said.
The attack happened at 10:25 a.m. Tuesday in the 1900 block of Canyon Terrace. According to police reports the woman walked across Canyon Terrace to pet a 3-year-old pit bull named Sydney when the dog lurched at her face and bit her, Deputy Richard Nelson said.
“There was no growl or warning,” Nelson said. “He just jumped at her, bit her jaw and ripped the skin from her face. She had petted him many times before.”
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and underwent emergency surgery by the plastic surgeon on duty, Nelson said.
The dog was taken to the county animal shelter and will be quarantined for 10 days.
