Wayne County woman suffers ‘drastic’ injuries after dog attack :: WRAL.com

A 71-year-old woman watering plants outside her home was seriously injured after being attacked by four dogs Wednesday morning, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities received a 911 call around 6:45 a.m. from someone reporting that an animal or object was under attack on Country Run Lane near Goldsboro. It took a second 911 call for authorities to determine the animals were attacking Mildred Game.

Animal control officers, sheriff’s deputies and emergency crews responded to Game’s home, where a deputy shot one of the animals – which a Wayne County spokeswoman described as being pit bulls – after it charged him, Maj. Tom Effler said.

The three other dogs were impounded, Effler said.

Game’s dog, Diamond, which tried to protect her, also suffered injuries and had to be euthanized, her son, Bobby Game said.

Mildred Game was being treated Wednesday afternoon at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

Bobby Game said Wednesday afternoon that his mother was still in surgery after more than two hours and that her wounds were “drastic.”

Six chunks of flesh were missing from her body, and he estimated it to have teeth marks all over her arms and legs.

The dogs’ owner, Terry Butler, lives next door to Game and said he was shocked to hear what his dogs did.

“I just want to tell Mrs. Mildred that I am sorry for what happened, and whatever I can do to make it right – I mean, there is nothing I can do,” Butler said.

Neighbors say they have been concerned about the dogs, and one said they thought it was just a matter of time before someone was hurt.

  1. It’s such a shame it’s not safe for a 71 year old woman to water her own flowers in peace. I am not blaming Pitt Bulls at all, but thug neighbors that move into nice older neighborhoods where decent older people live. These thugs love to have the so called ‘status’ of having these dogs to prove how evil they are. Drugs and thugs are destroying the America that I grew up in. The police can’t do anything about it or they scream racial profiling. What an evil group in America. I have been a jurrier for the last time. I no longer believe in America’s Judicial System. Either other jury members lie to get on a jury to help people like this and purger themselves or the prison system/judicial system is a revolving door.
