If you're about to head out to Golden Gate Park for an early morning walk or jog -- either pack a suit of armor or think again. KTVU-TV is reporting that a pair of vicious pit bulls roaming the area have attacked several people, triggering a police response.

The attacks have purportedly taken place in the vicinity of Lloyd Lake, near Fulton and Crossover drive. Pedestrians are urged to avoid the area as police search for the animals.

Update, 7:45: KTVU reports that one dog has been captured by police and animal control officers. Another dog was fired on by SFPD officers; it is uncertain if it was hit. At least two people have been hospitalized with bite wounds.

Update, 8 a.m.: Both dogs have now apparently been captured.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
