A Panama City woman’s arm had to be amputated by surgeons after a pit bull attacked her while she was working at a veterinary clinic. Coworkers who rescued the woman say that they saw the dog violently shaking the victim’s arm as they walked into the kennel to help her. They had to kick and strike the dog to get it to release the woman and were able to lock it in its cage to protect her. The 43-year-old victim is being held in guarded condition in the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital. The owner of Parkway Animal Hospital where the attack occurred, told investigating officers that the dog had been in her kennel for two weeks prior to the attack and had not acted aggressively before attacking the woman. The animal is being held by Animal Control and is expected to be destroyed.
