DODGE COUNTY (WITI) — A woman had to be taken to the hospital and her dog to the vet after they were attacked by a pit bull in the Village of Reeseville in Dodge County on Thursday, April 2nd.

It happened shortly before noon.

A 53-year-old Reeseville woman was walking her Dachshund on North Main Street in the Village of Reeseville when she was attacked by the pit bull. The pit bull had escaped from a fenced in backyard and ran across the street — attacking the victim.

The woman received numerous puncture wounds as a result of the attack and was transported by EMS to Beaver Dam Community Hospital for serious but non life-threatening injuries.

The Dachshund also received puncture wounds and lacerations requiring immediate veterinary care.

A citizen was driving by and was able to restrain the pit bull on the ground while waiting for emergency responders.  The pit bull died.

Dodge County Sheriff’s officials say it is believed that had the dog not been restrained, more severe injuries to the victim would have been likely.

The pit bull was owned by a 31-year-old Reeseville woman.

      it’s sad that this pit had an irresponsible owner and did not raise it correctly. It is never good that a dog dies. You are a horrible person For saying that Catia. From what I’ve heard there have been issues with this owner and pit in the past so the owner should have been more responsible about keeping their dog more secure.
