Woman attacked by pack of stray dogs

By Associated Press

GEORGETOWN, AL (AP) - A 49-year-old woman is recovering after being mauled by a pack of stray dogs at her trailer park near Georgetown in north Mobile County.

Mobile County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Joe Mahoney tells the Press-Register that the unidentified woman was taken to a local hospital for facial and body lacerations. Part of her nose was bitten off.

The Sunday morning attack involved a pack of 5 dogs that had occasionally been fed by other residents of the trailer park, according to Mahoney. He said trailer park residents told deputies the dogs appeared to be docile in the past.

Mobile County Animal Control officers took the dogs and they are in the county animal shelter, Mahoney said. He described them as mixed-breed pit bull and chow dogs.
