A Fulton County woman is recovering after the sheriff says she was attacked by her neighbor's two dogs Tuesday morning.
Dispatch: Fulton County 911, what is your emergency? Caller: My wife's just been mauled by a dog.
Just before 9:30 a.m., the Fulton County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call of a female who was attacked by two American Bulldogs in the 2400 block of County Road D in Swancreek Township. Deputies, Swanton Rescue, and the Fulton County Dog Warden were dispatched to the scene.
Initial investigation revealed a 59-year-old woman was trying to visit a neighbor when she walked into their vacant home and was attacked by two dogs. She fled the residence and managed to walk back to her home, where her husband called 911.
"She apparently thought somebody was home, but when she opened up the back door and walked into the house, she was attacked by two dogs," said Sheriff Roy Miller.
The sheriff's office says the woman received multiple bites to the face, neck, legs and arms. She was transported to a Toledo hospital, where her condition is unknown at this time.
Officials say the dogs are still at home and their owners may not face any charges.
"The dogs were actually on the premises and secured. Unfortunately, the victim just walked into this situation," said Miller.
The incident remains under investigation by the sheriff's office and dog warden.
