Animal Control officers were called in to remove an agressive dog that attacked a woman in Kennewick yesterday.

Officers arrived at a home on the 8600 block of West Yellowstone Street for a report of a woman who suffered several bites to her arm and leg.

Medics treated the woman and animal control officers went inside the home to gain control of the dog, a pit bull, that was still posing a threat to a woman and a young child were locked inside a bedroom.

The dog is being held for quarantine purposes.  The owner was charged with harboring of a dangerous animal.
