The pit bull-type dog that mauled a woman in Vanier on the weekend has been surrendered by the owner and will be euthanized, says the city.

City bylaw officers removed the dog Saturday after it attacked a 50-year-old woman at a house on Montfort Street, causing what paramedics called “critical wounds” on her torso and extremities.
