Moncks Corner, South Carolina (WCBD)-A 77-year-old woman is recovering from a serious injury after being attacked by a dog in Berkeley County on Tuesday afternoon.
Deputy Berkeley County Sheriff said the owner had a pitbull in the harness, but it was able to loosen and attack the woman while she was working in the yard of Santee Circle’s house.
Another neighbor saw what was happening, grabbed a gun and shot a dog, but it was dead, officials said. The dog owner told his neighbor to shoot the dog.
“Due to the severity of her injury at the time, the agent assisted EMS by taking her to the hospital,” said Chief Deputy Jeremy Baker.
News 2 found that women were stable and recovering in the hospital.
Dog owners have been charged with one charge: “animals in general” and “public sabotage dog attacks.”
