Three bitten in unrelated dog attacks in San Francisco 

Cops responded to three unrelated dog bite cases during a two-hour period in San Francisco last week.

Predator pooches preyed on people in the South of Market and Upper Haight neighborhoods Tuesday morning, police said.

At Fifth and Stevenson, cops came upon two suspects and a dog sleeping on the sidewalk at around 11:15 a.m. A victim told the cops the dog had bitten him. Cops said the dog was far from a peacenik.

The dog “continually lunged and barked at people as the officers were talking with the two men,” police said.

One of the men had a warrant and was booked into county jail. Animal Care and Control took custody of the dog, police said.

In a separate attack just before 10 a.m., cops responded to a dog bite call at Eighth and Howard streets. Cops said a victim had a bite on his chest. The victim pointed out the dog, which was ordered to be kept in quarantine for at least 10 days.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

At around 9:45 a.m., a Recreation and Parks gardener was bitten by a dog at Buena Vista Park, police said.
