An elderly woman is in good condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital after she was attacked by dogs in a neighbor’s yard Monday, Miami Police said.
The woman was walking and entered the neighbor’s yard at Northwest 1st Avenue and 44th Street, and the dogs then attacked her, Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.
They bit her in the face and arms, he said. Police could not say what kind of dogs they were Monday night.
Phillip Meronville showed up minutes later after the attack and was horrified by what he saw had happened to his wife of nine years, Mary Supre.
"I almost lose my mind because that's my wife. I love her so much. Because I don't want (her to) get hurt something like that," Meronville said. "She get hurt bad now."
He said his wife goes through the neighbor's gate on a daily basis.
Angela Anastasio witnessed the attack.
Anastasio said the dogs were relentless – and wouldn't give up even when the owners tried to rescue the woman.
"They were kicking the dog, pulling the dog off," Anastasio said.
