The incident occurred when the female jogger claims that she attempted to defend herself from an attacking dog when she sprayed it with pepper-spray.

The dog's owner, Cadwalader, then allegedly confronted the runner, tackling and punching her before sinking her teeth into her arm, leaving her with 'significant wounds', said the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department.
