Aggressive dog shot after mauling Dallas woman

- Police officers shot an aggressive dog that attacked two people in Dallas Wednesday morning.

Dallas Police Department spokesman Sr. Cpl. Tramese Jones said officers received a call around 8 a.m. about two aggressive dogs at a home in the 2900 block of Ramsey Avenue.

Apparently a couple went into the home to feed a female pit bull and her pup for a friend. For some reason the mother dog started attacking them.

The man managed to get away, but the dog continued to maul the woman for about 30 minutes.

Paramedics and police had a hard time getting in to the house to help the woman. Officers were forced to shoot the mother dog, which is not expected to survive.

"They were all up against the window and the police and ambulance was in the yard. The firemen were in the yard and they went to the window and told whoever was in there to put their hands up and come out. And they fired one time," said Ronald Williamson, a witness.

Witnesses said the badly injured woman was unconscious when paramedics pulled her from the house. She is expected to survive, but she has severe injuries that will possibly require amputation.

No one was cited after the incident because the dogs were not roaming loose. The owner had all the proper paperwork and the dogs' shots were all up to date.
