GRENADA COUNTY, MS - According to WTVA, a 70-year-old woman has died after she was attacked by six dogs.
Sheriff Alton Strider confirms that Diane Reeves died in her backyard along Carpenter Road. The mutt-lab mixed dogs belong to someone who lives down the street from Reeves.
At this time, the dogs are at a pound and their owner has not been cited. This is an ongoing investigation. The dogs will be analyzed by a veterinarian.
"It's really awful," Reeves' co-worker and friend, Shirley Holiday, said. "She retired about five years ago and she was just looking so forward to it. She had plans."
Holiday described her friend as sweet and well respected. She added Reeves worked as an “infection control nurse” at a local hospital.

How many wild animals are killing Americans each year? I'm sure if we combined cougar, bear, shark, wolf, coyote, and alligator attacks, they would be nowhere near the deaths we endure year after year by pit bulls. It's sickening.
