A Sweet Home woman was injured and one of her dogs was killed after a confrontation with a pit bull while on a walk last weekend.
At 10:13 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3 at 1530 Tamarack St., a civilian reported a pit bull attacking an elderly female and her dog. The caller told the cops that the pit bull still had the dog.
