LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Animal Control has found the dog that attacked its owner early Tuesday morning in Lincoln.

The white, two-year-old male pit bull terrier does not appear to be injured and will be held for a 10-day bite quarantine at the Capital Humane Society, Animal Control said.

The incident occurred when Lincoln Police officers responded to a residence on the 1700 block of N. 31st Street just before 1 a.m.

LPD said they received reports of a dog attacking a family. A 25-year-old victim on scene said the pit bull became aggressive toward her husband, so she grabbed a bat to protect her family.

According to police, the woman was bitten on the hand, leg, and chest.

The dog latched onto the woman's leg, and she proceeded to hit the dog roughly 30 times in the head but it would not loosen its grip, authorities said.

Police arrived on the scene and TASED the dog as it was attacking the victim.

LPD said the dog ran away and was eventually found on Thursday.
