ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque woman is facing charges after she allegedly sicked her pit bull on a Chihuahua.
It happened Monday night at a home near Coors and Barcelona.

The whole bloody attack was witnessed by the Chihuahua’s owners, a 9-year old boy and a 13-year old boy.
Trujillo is charged with extreme cruelty to animals.
