YUCCA VALLEY (AP) — A woman has been hospitalized after being mauled by two pit bulls.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s investigators say 46-year-old Jaqueline Sharp was attacked by the dogs Monday morning in Yucca Valley. She was airlifted to a hospital for severe wounds on her arms.

Radio station KCDZ in Joshua Tree says the woman was found in a pool of blood in a neighbor’s driveway and witnesses say the flesh on her arms was ripped up by dog bites.

The dogs were restrained by neighbors until deputies arrived. Yucca Valley animal control officers seized the dogs.

    Pit Bulls have the same brain equivalence as Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood. This is what happens when the owners don’t raise them right.

      When are they going to realize that mostly gang bangers and drug dealers treat these dogs poorly and make them mean? Out law the breed and make it a felony to own, posses or sell these worthless breed. Should be shoot on sight.

    The sad thing is that this breed was never meant to have this mentality. I personally know pits whose owners are very responsible and the dogs are very well behaved and socialized. I hope Ms. Sharp recovers. I know what will happen to the dogs. . . too bad. The owners should share the same fate that way they can’t just get two more dogs to endanger the neighborhood with.
