The Spartanburg County Environmental Enforcement Department said the dog's owner allowed the five dogs to escape and attack Lee.
According to the warrants, the five dogs belonged to Daisy Ann Anderson and said she knowingly and willingly allowed the dogs to escape knowing that they had a tendency to run at-large, bite or attempt to bite people.
Anderson was charged with five counts of Penalty for Owner of Dangerous Animal Attack and Injures a Human, according to the Environmental Enforcement Department.
She was also charged with violations of a local animal control ordinance.
Anderson was taken to the Spartanburg County Detention Center on an unrelated shoplifting charge in Greer and has since been released.
The woman described her injuries as “bullet holes,” after dogs bit her hips and legs and did not stop until she was rescued by nephews, WYFF said.
The dogs’ owner, Daisy Ann Anderson, 44, faced charges after the attack because she knew her pets “had a tendency to run at-large, bite or attempt to bite people,” according to WSPA.
When officers went to seize the pets, they discovered 12 other dogs at Anderson’s home, and she refused to sign them over, WYFF reported.
Eventually, the five dogs were impounded at the Spartanburg Humane Society, where they are “under rabies quarantine,” per WHNS.
The Spartanburg Environmental Enforcement Department said Anderson was charged with five counts for owners in dangerous animal attacks and injuries to a human, in addition to violations of a local animal control ordinance, according to WSPA.
