Fletcher Police: Great Danes Attack Woman
Police say a Fletcher woman is mauled by a pair of Great Danes and is now fighting to stay alive.
Police say the animals belong to the victim's relatives who live nearby. Officials say the woman entered the animals kennel, and was viciously attacked. It happened just before 9:30 Monday morning. Fletcher police say 58-year-old Gail Lanning was attacked by two Great Danes in a fenced-in yard off Poteat Street Extension. Police say a neighbor saw the attack occurring, and called 911. When officers arrived, the dogs were no longer attacking and Lanning was found lying on the ground. She was taken to Mission Hospital.
"They were serious injuries that she sustained from the dog attack," says Chief Erik Summey of Fletcher Police.
The two dogs involved are currently quarantined at the Henderson County Animal Shelter. At last check, the victim was in critical condition.
