Police expect charges will be laid against the owner of two dogs that got loose and allegedly attacked a woman in Calgary.

The woman was taken to hospital and both dogs were seized after the Wednesday night incident.

Police say they responded after reports of aggressive dogs running free in a northeast neighbourhood.

Officers arriving at the scene were forced to call for backup and animal control officers when the dogs swarmed their car.

The incident comes after a vicious attack in which three pit bulls killed a dog and injured another in a Calgary off-leash park.

A bylaw official says charges could be laid against both dog owners.
