SANTAQUIN, Utah — A dog was killed Tuesday evening after attacking an employee in the Macey’s parking lot.
Sgt. Mike Wall with Santaquin Police Department said at approximately 6 p.m. officers responded to the call of a dog attack at the Macey’s parking lot, 100 N. 400 East.
While in route, they were told there was one gunshot and the attacking dog was shot.
A juvenile employee of Macey’s was found in the parking lot with “wounds consistent with a dog attack on their arms and legs” which needed medical attention.
Wall said after the dog attacked this female worker, he tried to attack a man who was trying to help, at which point the man shot one bullet and killed the dog.
The owner of the dog was inside the store and had left three dogs in his car with the windows partially down.
The owner was identified as Juan Diego Espinosa, 33.
Wall said the Espinosa was charged and released with a citation.
They are not pursuing charges against the man who shot the attacking dog.
