91-Year-Old Woman Attacked By Dog Dies | NBC Connecticut

A 91-year-old woman who was mauled by her own dog in Stamford died this morning, according to officials from Bridgeport Hospital.

Police said the woman suffered serious arm injuries when the dog attacked around 4 p.m. on Friday at her home on Judith Terrace in Stratford.

The dog mauled her in the kitchen and, although the victim was gravely hurt, she was conscious and managed to call 911 on her own, police said.

First responders rushed her to Bridgeport Hospital, where she died, hospital officials said.

According to the woman’s daughter, the victim owned the black-and-white Keeshond mix for eight years and had never before had a problem with the animal.

Neighbors described the victim as a quiet and kind woman and said they were reeling from the news.

Animal Control officers brought the dog to an animal shelter in Stratford following the attack. The animal’s future remains uncertain.
