A woman described being attacked by TWO PIT BULLS after she stepped in to help her neighbor.
Kelly Babbit says she saw her neighbor being attacked while trying to save her own cat. When she tried to help, she says the two dogs turned on her.
"I got to there and the dog looked at me and the little one took a running leap and locked onto my face and I went down and when I went down, the big one came and locked on my head," said Babbit.
Her son said he heard her screaming went outside to help.
"I pushed one off to the side but the other one came up and bit me on my leg and he bit me on my other leg but didn't get me as good. And as soon as we threw him off, we ran inside and called the cops."
The dogs were later handed over to animal welfare workers. Neighbors in the area say they have reported the pit bulls running loose in the neighborhood for months. Investigators said all three of the injured victims are expected to be okay. Babbit is just glad no children were hurt.
"If that had a been a kid, they would have killed the kid."
Three people suffered minor injuries and two cats are dead after being attacked by dogs Thursday morning in a neighborhood near Yukon. The attack was reported just before 9 a.m. in a neighborhood near North Czech Hall Road and Reno Avenue.
According to police, a woman was sitting on her front porch and she let her cats out. Three dogs, including two PIT BULLS, approached the cats and the pit bulls began attacking them.
Police said the woman ran to save her cats, but the dogs began attacking her. Two others came to help the woman, and police said they were attacked by the dogs, too.
An officer arrived and fired a shot at one pit bull. The three dogs were taken into custody.
