Two young women in Indiana are recovering from a vicious pit bull attack while out on an afternoon jog.
The two cousins 19-year-old Isabella George and 20-year-old Rebekah Forgey decided to joy along a country road in Carroll County, Indiana when suddenly a pack of four pit bulls approached and brutally attacked the pair.
After realising the dogs’ intentions, the two women raced across a field toward home.
But the dogs chased them down and tackled the women to the ground. Then the pit bulls started tearing away at the young women’s flesh.
THE ATTACK BECAME A 30-MINUTE “FEEDING FRENZY.”
Forgey is missing more than 75 percent of her scalp and muscles were ripped from her leg.
Despite the injuries, she is in stable condition in intensive care. But she’ll need muscle and skin grafts and will NEVER be able to regrow her hair.
George fared better. She is recovering at home with puncture wounds and large bruises all over her body.
THE DOG’S OWNER RICHARD DARTER, 50, TRIED TO STOP THE ATTACK BUT ENDED UP AS DOG FOOD TOO.
The victims and owner were only rescued when a motorist saw what the dogs were doing in the field. She drove in and scattered the animals then hauled the victims into her truck.
The heroic woman was called a “godsend” for rescuing these people.
The dogs were caught the next day. One was shot dead by police and the other three were euthanized.
Darter was previously cited for not controlling his dogs. Carroll County Sheriff Toby Leazenby calls for prosecutors to charge the dog owner.
