A 70-year-old woman from Long Island was killed when she was attacked by her own pit bull.
The victim’s husband returned to their home in Albertson on Wednesday morning when he saw his wife being mauled by the pit bull.
When the husband arrived at 1 o'clock he went into the back yard and he found his wife being attacked by the dog at that time being dragged through the yard,” Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said.
A responding officer shot the dog after it charged at him. The officer was so traumatized by what he saw that he had to be taken to the hospital.
