Pitbull

The caller stated that two Pit bulls attacked his sister-in-law, 66-year-old Lorraine Brock Saylor, and injured his brother.

The couple did not own the pit bulls, officials said.

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.

"Johnny got a gun and shot both dogs, killing one of them instantly", said Steele.

He shot both animals, killing one and injuring the other, to fight them off but it was too late to save his wife.

The Bell County Sheriff's department confirmed to WYMT a woman was killed following a dog attack.

"I'd seen them, but I didn't think they'd be mean like that", James Saylor said.

Investigators with the sheriff's office are warning residents no to engage with the risky animal if they come across it.

The woman was declared dead at the scene, and emergency responders transported the man to an area hospital.

A pitbull that ran away Sunday morning after a fatal attack in the Wiser Branch area of Bell County, Kentucky was put down Monday afternoon. "It's overwhelming the circumstances and what he found", Steele said.

"Tragically the woman died from her injuries in the attack", the department said. 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.

When deputies arrived, they found the couple had been "savagely attacked by two pit bulls".

The names of the victims were not being release pending notification of other family members, according to Bell County Coroner Jay Steele.
