TRINITY, LAWRENCE COUNTY AL - ANIMAL CONTROL SAYS HOPE CAMPBELL'S STORY OF BEING ATTACKED BY WOLF-LIKE DOGS IS NOT THE TRUTH - THEY WERE A FRIEND'S DOGS AND THEY HAVE ATTACKED BEFORE - WHAT BREED ARE THEY???

WSFA.com Montgomery Alabama news. Animal control says woman's story erroneous

Lawrence County Animal Control Officer Murphy DeJoya said the story a woman told WAFF 48 News about a brutal dog attack is not totally factual.

DeJoya said it is true that several dogs mauled her, but he added that they were not a pack of wild dogs, and it did not happen in the street. He also said the dogs involved are secured right now.

During an interview with WAFF 48 News from her room at Decatur Morgan General Hospital, Campbell said on June 8, at least five dogs attacked her in Trinity on County Road 358 near County Road 460. 
DeJoya said he investigated throughout the weekend, and Sunday he learned that Campbell wanted to talk with him. DeJoya said when talking to her on Monday, he learned that the attack happened on the property of the dogs' owner. His investigation revealed that some of the dogs may have bitten people before.

He said the five dogs are currently kenneled by the owner. DeJoya is asking the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office and the district attorney to deem them dangerous and have them seized.

"My biggest concern right now is to let the folks know that these dogs are confined, they're not running large at the moment. But we still have to go further with this investigation," DeJoya said.

District Attorney Errek Jett said he is reviewing the case. He said any charges against the victim are unlikely because her false account was told to WAFF 48 News, but not to law enforcement.

When they hide the breed, we already know it's pit bull types.
