ROBESON COUNTY NC - A 63-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS ATTACKED BY 2 PIT BULLS AT A HOME WHERE SHE WAS ??RETURNING A KNIFE?? NOPE! THAT'S NOT HOW IT HAPPENED...SHE HAD DRIVEN THE NUTTER TO GET GROCERIES AND STEPPED OUT OF HER CAR TO CLOSE THE TRUNK!!!

UPDATE!

PEMBROKE — A 63-year-old woman who was attacked by two pit bulls was released Wednesday from UNC Hospitals after five days of treatment, but will have to return for what she characterized as “bad” injuries.

Karen Coronado also disputes an account of the attack that was provided by the person who owns the home where it happened.
Coronado, a well-known artist in the Pembroke community, had been at the hospital since Friday, after she was attacked earlier that day. The pit bulls, which homeowner Vinita Clark told The Robesonian belong to her two her sons, were not vaccinated against rabies so they had to be put down so their brains could be tested for the disease. Neither was rabid.

Clark called The Robesonian earlier this week and volunteered a story in which she said Coronado was returning a borrowed knife and the animals believed there was a threat.
Coronado read the article and called The Robesonian, saying no knife was involved.
Instead, according to Coronado, she had done Clark a favor by driving her to a local store. When they returned to Clark’s home, at 339 Juddie St. and on the edge of town, Clark removed something from the trunk, but was unable to close it despite repeated attempts.
Coronado, who said she was aware of the dogs, forgot about them momentarily, and exited the car to try to close the trunk. That is when she said she was attacked. She said she went limp in an effort to get the dogs to end their attack and was able to escape and get in her vehicle.
Clark’s property is partly in Pembroke and partly outside, and it was determined that the attack was not in the town’s jurisdiction, so the investigation is being conducted by the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.
Early in 2016 a pit bull attacked and killed a Lumberton child, prompting the city to adopt an ordinance targeting dogs deemed “vicious.” The ordinance requires, among other things, that dogs deemed a threat be registered with the city and the owner carry liability insurance.

I RECEIVED THIS COMMENT AND CAN'T GET IT TO PUBLISH ON THIS POST SO I COPIED AND PASTED IT HERE.  THANK YOU "ONE WHO KNOWS".  I KNEW THERE WAS MORE TO THIS PIT MAULING.  I  LOOKED FOR ANOTHER ARTICLE BUT COULD NOT FIND ONE.  PLEASE KEEP US INFORMED ON HOW SHE IS DOING.

A 63-year-old woman who was attacked by TWO PIT BULLS  last week is still being treated for her injuries at UNC Hospitals, but there is no chance that she was exposed to the rabies virus.
Bill Smith, director of the Health Department, confirmed on Monday that the two animals that attacked Karen Coronado did not test positive for the fatal disease at a state lab. Neither of the dogs had proof of vaccination, so they had to be put down so that their brains could be used for testing.
There was no information on the injuries suffered by Coronado during the attack that occurred at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the home of Vinita Clark at 339 Juddie St. There had been some question about jurisdiction as Clark’s home is partly in Pembroke and partly in the county, but it was determined the attack was in the county and the investigation is being conducted by the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.
There was no information today on if any charges have been filed.
Clark called The Robesonian today and told a reporter that the dogs belong to her sons, including one who was arrested last week and charged for trying to throw drugs into the Robeson County Detention Center.  She said Coronado was at her house returning a knife, and had been told not to get out of the vehicle, but did anyway. She said one of the dogs bit her when it “sensed danger” as Coronado held the knife.

"She said one of the dogs bit her when it “sensed danger” as Coronado held the knife."

Give me a effing break!!!! That is just another ignorant statement after a pit bull attack to try to justify what these fugly things do on a daily basis.

Thank you for updating this article Decature! It freaking figures the pit owner wasn't even there, just doing what pit owners always do after an attack... LIE, LIE and damage control LIE.

Is that a joke? The pit bull sensed danger? How on earth would a pit bull know the difference between a knife, a set of keys, mail, or a newspaper? Seriously, the nutters go to great lengths with their excuses for pibbles.

The truth comes out. What a shock that there was no threat, just normal, everyday activities. Hmm, another example that pit bulls can't handle life, or are we the ones with the problem?

Add repeatedly closing a trunk to the ever growing list of pit bull triggers.
