After San Francisco police shot and killed a pit bull that bit two men in Golden Gate Park on Tuesday night, animal control officials this morning captured a second dog that was apparently involved in the attack.

The second pit bull was found around 8:30 a.m. near Haight and Stanyan streets, San Francisco Animal Care and Control Capt. Le-Ellis Brown said.

The two dogs reportedly attacked a man at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday near 25th Avenue and Lincoln Way. The man suffered several bites, and a second person who tried to intervene was also bitten, police said.

Officers arrived, found one of the pit bulls and fatally shot it. The second pit bull, a female, ran off and was not found until this morning, Brown said.

Police said the man who suffered multiple dog bites was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition. The second victim declined medical attention.

No information was immediately available about who owned the pit bulls.
