MILLVILLE, Cache County — Authorities say three women were injured during an attack by a pit bull in the northern Utah city of Millville.

The Herald Journal newspaper reports that a 20-year-old woman was attacked by a pit bull Tuesday afternoon while walking home from the post office.

The Cache County Sheriff's Office says two other women who intervened to help were also bitten.

All three were treated for their injuries but expected to survive.

The pit bull was impounded. Sheriff's animal control deputies are investigating the case to determine if they will recommend any criminal charges.
