A woman, Johana Villafane, has been mauled to death by her pitbull dogs while visiting them at O’Connor Animal Hospital on Saturday.
The dogs had earlier attacked another person and were scheduled to be tested for rabies when the incident happened.
The 33-year old mother of two was walking and feeding the male dog when the dogs suddenly attacked her. Workers at the shelter were prevented by the dogs from getting close to her body to rescue her.
When police arrived the scene, they had to shoot the dogs so they could get close to her body.
The woman died after she was rushed to a local hospital for treatment. The severity of the injuries suffered made her give up the ghost.
