Family members were home at the time of the attack.

Police have not said what type of dogs were involved, but neighbors say the homeowner was always walking TWO PIT BULLS  on leashes.

Those pit bulls look like they're from the same litter. Also, they are FUGLY! How anyone finds pit bulls even remotely attractive is beyond me.

May the poor 86-year-old woman RIP. Although, I always think it's impossible after how these victims are dispatched.

A later article tells us this:
"WBTV has learned that the dogs' owner, the victim's daughter, didn't want to sign the dogs over - so animal control officers seized the dogs."

Can you imagine that? Your mother is lying in a pool of her own blood dead on the floor with her head shredded, but you shout "I want to keep my pit bulls!"

Or the other way round? You're lying dead on the floor, shredded by your own child's pit bull type dogs, and even as she looks at your dead body, that child wants to keep the pit bulls?

This goes beyond what any sane person can imagine, yet it's the reality of people who like or own pit bull types. Worse yet, it's beyond insanity that our lawmakers continue to cater to these insane people. The inmates have taken over the asylum.

Lawmakers are crazy themselves. To have pit bulls parade around as normal dogs that kill a human with ease, should be a NO BRAINER! It's not that hard to figure out that pit bulls are NOT normal dogs. But for some people, denial runs so deep it doesn't even register when the unthinkable happens.
