An 11-month-old pit bull has been seized by the City of Calgary’s Community Standards department after a woman was taken to hospital Wednesday with multiple dog bites.

EMS said the call came in around 8:10 a.m. for reports of a possible animal bite in the 80-block of Abergale Close N.E.

A spokesperson with the city said the woman was walking down a back alley when the dog escaped from its yard and attacked her.

The 32-year-old woman was transported to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries after being bitten several times, police said.

The owner of the dog was cooperating with the investigation, the city said Wednesday afternoon.

Bylaw officers continue to investigate and the city said more details should be available in the coming days.
