I was holding off on posting this one until more information came out about the attack, but at this point, it doesn't appear as if we'll get much more info.
In Trotwood, 75 year old Dawn Juergens was tragically killed in her home by her two dogs.
The woman was home alone with the two dogs, described as Cane Corsos. Authorities believe she may have had food 'on or about her person" and the dogs went into "a frenzy" when she tried to put them back in their kennels. In the frenzy, the woman was killed by the two large dogs.
There were no witnesses to the attack and the victim's husband returned home to find her dead. My heart goes out to the family and friends.
This story has been picked up by only 1 media outlet. The 45426 zip code in Trotwood has a 19% poverty rate.
While dog attacks such as this are very rare, they do happen. And it is important that when we look at these instances that we work to determine the reason for the attack based on the circumstances that led up to the attack, not focusing on breed. I'll post more on this if more information becomes available.
