A woman was attacked by six pit bulls while walking her
daughter’s dog on Wednesday night in Taunton, Massachusetts.
An officer on routine patrol in the area saw a woman running
in the middle of the road. He saw six pit bulls following and attacking
51-year-old Rochelle Silva.
She ended up in her neighbor’s yard with her body on her daughter’s dog trying to protect it from the vicious beasts.
The officer activated the sirens and air horn to try to
distract the animals. It allowed the woman enough time to get to her feet and
get into the officer’s cruiser.
Silva said, “At least three of them started charging at
me down the driveway.”
“I thought I was going to die,” she stated.
“The chunks that were coming out of my body, I could feel them.”
The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
