One woman dead after two dogs attack her, her husband

Kentucky woman killed 'savagely' in dog attack identified

Lorraine Saylor was putting bird seed out in her yard at her Kentucky home Sunday when she was mauled by the two pit bulls.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department said it received a call at 10:20 a.m. Highway 66 in the Wiser Branch area of Arjay about the dog attack.

His brother rushed outside when he heard the commotion and was able to distract the dogs long enough to allow Johnny to rush inside and grab a pistol. "She was just a sweetheart" said Steele.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The husband was taken to the Pineville Community Hospital for injuries to his arm and head. The second pit bull was nearby, so "fearing for his life", the husband shot and killed the dog, the sheriff's department said.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department determined the dogs do not belong to the couple.

"Under no circumstances are you to engage this unsafe animal", the sheriff's department said.

When deputies arrived, they found the couple had been "savagely attacked by two pit bulls".

Lankford now also faces charges of harboring a vicious animal after authorities said his two pit bulls attacked a couple and killed a woman.

Police are asking people in the community to be on the lookout for a brown and white pit bull that is injured. It is not known who, if anyone, was watching over the dogs when they attacked the Saylors.

Police ask anyone who believes they have spotted the animal to immediately call 911 or 606-337-6174. The other dog has not been found yet. The Bell County coroner plans to conduct an autopsy on the woman.

"I'd seen them, but I didn't think they'd be mean like that".

James Saylor said he is still just trying to understand the attack.
