Dog Attack In Chicago’s Little Village Neighborhood

There was a dog attack on Thursday (November 12, 2015) in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood.

First responders were called to an apartment in the 2300 block of S. Whipple Street at approximately 11:00 a.m.  This dog attack involved a woman being attacked by the family dog, a pit bull.

The woman, identified as being 34 years old, was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital for treatment of several dog bite injuries.  She was said to be in critical condition.

An excerpt from the November 12, 2015 article (with video) titled “Disabled woman attacked by family dog, critically injured“:

Sources said the dog had puppies recently and the woman was cleaning the floor and apparently didn’t see one of the puppies. The mother dog then turned on the woman biting her in the arm, neck and face.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this Chicago dog attack can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the article mentioned above, as well as the November 12 CBS Chicago article titled “Woman Bitten By Dog, Critically Injured In Little Village” and the November 12 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Woman in critical condition after being bitten by pit bull.”
