Woman killed by neighborhood dogs

Montgomery County [NC] Sheriff Chris Watkins released this statement Friday, August 10.

On Thursday, August 9, 2018, a resident of a Lake Tillery development on the western side of Montgomery County went missing while taking her daily walk. After several hours the 66 year old female did not return home. Her husband called neighbors and friends who searched the area. They were unable to locate her and call 911. Sheriff’s deputies and search and rescue were sent to the scene. Within hours she was discovered deceased on the side of an unused road within the development. An investigation was conducted with the assistance of the Medical Examiner’s Office, NC Wildlife Resources Commission and Animal Control. The investigation revealed she had been attacked by dogs. Law enforcement searched the neighborhood and located two pit bull dogs with physical evidence reflecting the dog’s involvement. The animals were taken into custody by Animal Control and are being quarantined. The owner of the dogs is cooperating with officials and the matter is still under investigation and review by the District Attorney’s Office. The name of the victim is being withheld until family members can be notified. The victim is being sent to the NC Medical Examiner’s Office in Raleigh for an autopsy. “This is a very tragic event, which has deeply affected the family, friends, deputies and first responders, our thoughts and prayers are being extended to all.”

The owner is cooperating.  My guess is he didn’t think is dogs could do that and didn’t know they had gotten out.

If you are out and about and choose to carry, remember, in your mind you maybe watching out for just the two-legged predators out to get you.  You never know what else is lurking outside your home.

  1. Let me offer my condolences to the family.

    Using the snowflake communist/antifa logic, we must ban pit bull puppies, so they are unable to grow to adulthood.

    1. Some locations DO ban “dangerous dogs”, and some insurance companies won’t give you homeowner’s insurance if you own them.

  2. Then again, depending on where you live, wildlife may be a bigger concern.
    Dogs can kill but usually do not. Rabid wildlife is quite another matter, unless you get prompt medical care. Just in the past week or two there was an item on Boston area TV about a woman attacked by a fox in broad daylight. The report didn’t even mention rabies, a shocking omission given that it obviously was in play here.

  3. Rest in Peace… Let me offer my condolences to the family. American Pit Bull Terrier is also banned in a number of cities across the world so there are some legal hassles concerning this breed. In India though there is no ban on Pit bulls but there might be some restrictions relating to imports. This breed also needs extensive training and socializing which can be time consuming for its owners.
