Bullhead City woman hospitalized after dog bite

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. — Authorities in Bullhead City say a woman was
attacked by a dog when she trespassed into a home.

Bullhead City police said the 55-year-old woman entered through a secured gate,
despite the presence of several signs warning of a dog.

Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said when the woman knocked on the door, a pit
bull-Rottweiler mix came out and attacked her.

Fromelt said the unidentified woman was taken to a hospital and then flown to
Las Vegas for further treatment for injuries to her face and arm.

Fromelt said the home’s residents did not know the woman.

She said the dog is being contained at the home and is up to date on shots.

Police did not say if the woman will face charges.
