“This truly is a devastating & tragic incident! More so as Ms Hunt & her sister so kindly rescued pit bulls, offering them a home. Sadly most pit bulls that have been raised to fight, can not forget the training, bullied into them by their previous irresponsible, degenerate owners.”
ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. — Animal Control officers had to put down seven pit bulls that viciously attacked and killed their owner.
According to deputies, Mary Jo Hunt, 53, was killed in the backyard of her Robeson County home, just south of Fayettteville, last week.
Authorities said the dogs attacked Hunt when she used a rake to separate them from fighting.
A neighbour who witnessed the aftermath called 911.
Investigators said Hunt and her sister took care of the rescued animals at their home.
Two other dogs were also seized, but they are being kept in isolation.
