ALEXANDER CITY AL - A SON'S TWO BULLDOGS MAULED HIS 70-YEAR-OLD MOTHER FOR ALMOST 30 MINUTES...SHE IS HOSPITALIZED WITH HORRIFIC INJURIES

TWO BULLDOGS  reportedly viciously attacked a 70-year-old woman in Alexander City Thursday evening, sending her to the hospital covered in severe bites and puncture wounds.
The incident lasted more than half an hour and left the woman - who was not identified in a report on the attack published by the Alexander City Outlook - in the hospital as of Saturday.
Alexander City Police Department Animal Control Officer Scott Wright told the Outlook that the attack was "the worst dog attack I have ever encountered," adding that it was "unprovoked" and that the dogs were owned by the woman's son. They were both put down following the attack.
"For almost 30 minutes they continued to bite and maul her despite her attempts to fight them off," Wright told the Outlook. "She used her hands, legs, a brick and two-by-fours to try to keep them away but they just kept coming."
He explained to the Outlook that the dogs seemed to not be properly chained up and that police had responded to the woman's son's house on dog-related calls in the past.
"It's still an open investigation," Wright told the newspaper. "No charges have been filed at this time, but we do anticipate that changing as we complete our work in the case."

Why own dogs like this in the first place and why in hell allow them anywhere near your elderly mother? Owner is a sociopath. Prior incidents with the vicious dogs which were not properly chained or vaccinated, the story said. Get multiple large dangerous animals, provide no veterinary care, little socialization probably, let them run amuck. Invite mom over. I hope they file criminal charges.

Sounds like a couple of pit bulls to me.
