The Hawaiian Humane Society has impounded two pit bulls after they allegedly attacked a woman and a smaller poi dog in Ewa Beach on Sunday.
Maria Glidden, Humane Society spokeswoman, said the two dogs got loose and attacked the smaller poi dog.
Glidden said witnesses intervened to help the owner of the smaller dog who in turn was bitten by the pit bulls on both arms.
The victim was taken to the hospital and the injured dog described, as part Beagle, to the veterinarian for treatment, Glidden said.
Glidden said the Humane Society issued the owner of the pit bulls two dangerous dog citations — a petty misdemeanor.
