One woman has been killed and another seriously injured in a “vicious” dog attack, US police have said.
Police said the woman was “severely injured” and was taken to hospital for treatment, where she remains in a stable condition.
Minutes later, police received another call from the owner of the dogs who said the animals had attacked another woman nearby, ABC 13 reports.
The victim was found lying dead in a ditch covered in bite marks, according to the news channel.
Police told the channel three pit bull dogs had been contained.
The owner could face negligent manslaughter charges, police added.
