Colorado: Woman suffers heart attack after dog attack
BRIGHTON, Colorado – A 70-year-old woman suffered a heart attack after being attacked by two dogs outside her home.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports that Mary Garcia was bitten as she went to lock her car Friday night while she baby-sat her great-grandson. The dogs, a boxer/pit-bull mix and a boxer/pit-bull-/mastiff mix, bit at Garcia’s face, arms and legs. Garcia’s great-grandson looked on from inside the house.
Neighbors who witnessed the attack were able to chase the dogs away. Garcia is in critical condition at a Denver hospital.
The dogs’ owner, Chester Chacon, was cited with two counts of having vicious animals. Animal control officers seized the dogs, which will be euthanized.
