Woman dies in pit bull attack

Kentucky woman killed 'savagely' in dog attack identified

The Bell County Sheriff's Office says in a statement on Facebook that the attack occurred Sunday along state Route 66.

The call came in around 10:20 a.m. Sunday morning.

A dog attack over Christmas weekend left one Kentucky woman dead and her husband injured.

His brother rushed outside when he heard the commotion and was able to distract the dogs long enough to allow Johnny to rush inside and grab a pistol. As for the dogs, he said he had seen them before. The husband was taken to the Pineville Community Hospital for injuries to his arm and head.

Once free, Johnny retrieved a gun and shot both, but killed just one. One escaped, however, according to the sheriff's department.

Authorities are asking the community to keep an eye for the missing dog but urged them not to engage with the animal should they come across it.

"Under no circumstances are you to engage this risky animal", they urged.

A dispatch official said the caller reported that his brother and sister-in-law were attacked by two of their neighbor's dogs.

When deputies arrived, they saw the victims "had been savagely attacked by two pit bulls". "She anxious more about neighbors and friends than she did herself, as Johnny's the same way, they're just a very giving couple".

"She loved animals and every morning she would go out and put wild bird seed out on a metal roof of a little work shed they had there and feed then birds", Bell County coroner Jay Steele, who has known the couple for the last 30 years, told ABC affiliate WATE.
