Pit Bulls Come Into Home, Maul Woman

A home invasion, of sorts, in Washington state has left a woman badly injured, but her attackers weren’t human, they were dogs.

Police in Pierce County says two pit bull terriers broke into the victim’s home through a pet door and attacked the woman who was in her bed.

She managed to grab a gun and tried to shoot the dogs, enabling her to get away and lock herself in her car. From there, she was able to call 911.

The woman is hospitalized in serious condition.

Police say the pit bulls also killed a neighbor’s Jack Russell terrier, which apparently heard the noises coming from the home and went inside.

Police used pepper spray and fought the dogs to get them under control. It’s expected the animals will be destroyed.
