When officers arrived, they found the woman suffering from severe dog bites. The dog bounded down the steps to attack the woman again. Officers distracted the dog and the dog began to attack the officers who fired a taser at the dog which later died. The woman’s husband was discovered in an upstairs bedroom also suffering from similar wounds. Both were taken to shock -trauma with sever (but not life-threatening) injuries.
Police believe the couple was caring for the dog which belonged to one of their children.
