A Montreal woman is in hospital after being attacked by two pit bulls in the Hochelaga Maisonneuve district, police say.
The 44-year-old woman, whose identity hasn't been disclosed, was bitten on her arms and back near Tree-City Lumber & Plywood by Notre-Dame East and Sicard streets on Friday morning.
Port of Montreal employees found the woman after she also injured herself trying to climb a barbed-wire fence to escape the attack. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and remains in hospital.
One of the two dogs, thought to be the more aggressive one, was captured but police were still hunting for the other until about 10:30 a.m. when they decided to pull back their search in hopes that it would come out of hiding.
