Woman mauled by two Great Danes in Henderson Co.
HENDERSON COUNTY, N.C. — A Fletcher woman is fighting to stay alive after police say she was mauled by a pair of Great Danes Monday morning.
According to WLOS, the dogs belong to the victim’s relatives who live nearby.
Officials say 58-year-old Gail Lanning entered the fenced-in yard just before 9:30 a.m. and was viciously attacked by the dogs.
A neighbor saw the attack and called 911. When police arrived, the dogs were no longer attacking Lanning and she was found on the ground.
Lanning was taken to Mission Hospital where she is in critical condition.
The two dogs are currently quarantined at the Henderson County Animal Shelter.
There are no details on why the dogs may have attacked.
