Dog Mauling In NE OKC Leaves Woman In Critical Condition
OKLAHOMA CITY - A woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition after she was mauled by four vicious dogs, Saturday night.
Oklahoma City police are still trying to figure out exactly what happened. A witness tells us a woman was walking down Northeast 29th Street near Lindsey Avenue when four pit bull dogs rushed her, attacked her, and took her to the ground.
"Like four pits just attacked her. We were like dang, and I ain't gonna lie, it got graphic, like limbs, you saw some bone, blood. They had her arm, leg. They were just kind of ripping at her," witness Kwasi Stephens said.
Police were called to the area around 9:30 p.m. When officers arrived, witnesses say the victim was being attacked as neighbors tried in vain to stop them.
"There were two guys that tried to help her. One dude with a bat, and one dude was just hitting on them but like, the dogs wasn't giving up and that's when the cops were called. The cops started shooting at them," Stephens said.
Police shot one of the massive dogs to death. We are told they hit another dog, then corralled the three surviving dogs together until animal control arrived. Neighbors tell us the dogs frequently get away from their home and are aggressive.
Authorities are not releasing the woman’s name but say she was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
