WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - A Waterbury woman says her 76-year-old husband is in the hospital after getting attacked by a pit bull for the second time this year.

Cecilia Forget told the Republican-American (https://bit.ly/1mvbRTN ) that her husband, Leo, was walking their American Eskimo dog named Pilot on a leash Sunday afternoon when an unleashed pit bull attacked him and their dog. A neighbor who chased the pit bull says someone in a car lured the dog in and sped off.

Leo Forget, who has a prosthetic leg, was knocked down and suffered cuts and bruises. He also received tetanus and rabies shots. His dog, Pilot, wasn’t seriously hurt.

Leo Forget also was attacked in February.

Police are looking for the pit bull and its owner. Neighbors say it has attacked other people and dogs.
