A man attacked while walking his dog in San Francisco’s Mission District early this morning was uninjured but his dog was stabbed to death, a police spokesman said.
The 20-year-old man was walking his dog near 22nd and Bartlett streets at about 3 a.m. when two men between 20 and 25 years old approached him with a knife, police Officer Gordon Shyy said.
One of the two men grabbed the dog and they got into an argument. Eventually they let the dog go and ran away, but when the man looked at his dog he realized it had been stabbed, Shyy said.
He took the dog to an animal hospital but it died from its injuries. Police have not located any suspects in the attack.
