Kentucky woman killed by two pit bulls and husband hurt


Two pit bulls reportedly mauled a Kentucky woman to death and injured her husband during a gruesome attack on Christmas Eve. According to Steele, the pit bulls belong to the Saylors' neighbors, although there hasn't been an official confirmation of this fact.

Police say Lorraine Brock Saylor was killed by the dogs as she was putting out bird seed at her home in Arjay, Kentucky.

Steele said one dog died while the other got away. He then ran outside and that's when the dogs started attacking him.

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

"Pit bulls are left at shelters in record numbers-and since they are hard to adopt out, reputable shelters (that don't slam the door in the dogs' faces) are finding that they must euthanize more pit bulls and pit bull mixes than all other dogs combined", the group says.

He already is in the Bell County Detention Center after being arrested Friday on charges of second-degree assault, domestic violence and unlawful imprisonment.

Lorraine Saylor suffered fatal injuries in the attack and was pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner. The caller said they were pit bulls.

In that instance, their owner had left them with their dad while she took care of personal issues.

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.
