Girl Recovering After Attack by Pack of Wild Dogs
12-year old Melissa Rollins was attacked by a packed of dogs as she played basketball. The 80 lb german shepherd chow mix tried to drag Melissa to a wooded area. Her brother, 13-year old Kevin, bravely fought the dog off, hitting it in the face with his shoes. Melissa suffered severe gashes on her legs, hand and neck. She spent 3 days in the hospital after surgery.
The dogs appear to have been abandoned and likely attacked Melissa for food. One adult and 4 pups were trapped and euthanized. There are most likely 2 more adult german shepherds remaining in the area.
