Pit bull attack kills woman, injures man on Christmas Eve

Kentucky woman killed 'savagely' in dog attack identified

A Kentucky woman is dead and her husband is severely injured after they suffered a Christmas Eve pit bull attack.

Around 10.20am, brother-in-law James Saylor called police to tell them that the two dogs had "savagely" attacked the couple.

Lorraine Saylor was putting bird seed out in her yard at her Kentucky home Sunday when she was mauled by the two pit bulls.

42, was arrested and charged with harboring a vicious animal after two of his pitbulls attacked and killed Lorraine Brock Saylor, 66, in Kentucky on December 24, 2017. The second pit bull was nearby, so "fearing for his life", the husband shot and killed the dog, the sheriff's department said. When he came outside, he shot one of the dogs in the chest as it lunged at him. Bell County sheriff has warned residents to be on the lookout for the injured brown pit bull which managed to get away. And the other ran off and wasn't found until 2 p.m. Monday. "They were both active within the community and just, like I said, two of the nicest people you would ever meet". Her husband was hospitalized. "She anxious more about neighbors and friends than she did herself, as Johnny's the same way, they're just a very giving couple". Deputies were called to the scene around 10:20 a.m. Sunday on Highway 66 in the Wiser Branch area, the Bell County Sheriff's Department said in a news release. One can get in touch with Bell County Dispatch at 606-337-6174 or simply dial 911 if one happens to come across the crippled creature.

It comes about a week after a 22-year-old Virginia woman was mauled by two of her pet pit bulls while she was going for a walk.
