22 thoughts on “2020 Dog Bite Fatality: Woman Dies After Suffering Life-Threatening Injuries in Vicious Dog Attack in Louisiana

Please review our comment policy.

  1. News media did not report this vicious, brutal, painful butchering death? If news media reported all fatal dog maulings and all severe dog maulings, then everyone would openly know what everyone already knows. Most people only secretly know the truth, only a few people openly state the truth: All people are at risk at all times of the grave threat of virtually instant, anytime, anywhere severe or fatal dog mauling. The news media does not want people to be forced to openly admit that we have forced this hostility upon our selves. When I say that she is now in a better place, I mean it literally.

  2. Contrast the coverage of dog attacks with that of “murder hornets”…of which only two specimens have been found in the entire U.S. and which have killed or injured zero Americans, but which are the subject of an incredible amount of breathless and panicked press on every news medium.

      • Well, you know about those hornets. Things are up to no good, doncha know.

        OTOH, dogs are worshipped in our society. And therein lies the root of the problem.

  3. I always get sad hearing a Louisiana attack. An attack so bad that the victim ended up brain dead, I can’t even imagine it. Prayers for her daughters and the rest of her family.

    It’s astounding how we still have these horrid beasts in our society, causing death and harm constantly to people of all ages, yet the media just ignores it. Meanwhile every news station has been talking non-stop about that stupid virus that only has a small fatality rate for the average healthy person for the past 3 months! It’s ridiculous.

  4. A May 2 public post from Lee High School Rebels was sent in. Roxie was alone when the dog attacked (“bleeding out for hours on the ground before she was found”). She likely remained unresponsive through death (“She was viciously attacked by a dog a few days ago and is in ICU, not responding. The artery in her neck is unable to be worked on because it is so mangled, and oxygen isn’t getting to her brain, which is now swelling a significant amount. Her neck and arm suffered many fractures. She lost the majority of the skin on her scalp and all but a piece of one ear.”) She hauntingly added, “You never think something like this will happen to you, until it does.”

    • This is so terribly sad, poor soul. Yes, murder bees, faulty baby seats (very important of course) but monster mutts are killing and maiming children and people of all ages. I bet a huge proportion is not reported. Our society has become insane with the defense and worship of ALL dogs, even the killers. And those who dare to expose or speak out are threatened with violence or worse. It’s horrible enough that we’re in a pandemic, but the other stories of lives lost will be buried along with all the excuses that it’s not the dog’s fault.

  5. What a gruesome death of a beautiful lady. This should have been deemed newsworthy. Everything about her injuries does sound exactly like a pit bull attack. I wonder if the dog is still at large? I may have overlooked it if the post said whether or not this was so. If still at large, this beast is what people should be fearing.

    I’m so saddened for the family losing this mother in such a horrible way. Heartbreaking.

    Also wondering how come the murder hornet lobbyists haven’t started a campaign to prove that murder hornets used to be called Nanny Hornets because they were so good with children. Or why they don’t promote murder hornets adoption events in which the hornets are dressed in tiny flower crowns and tutus and everyone claps and cheers when a murder hornet that waited 4 years for its “flyever family” goes home with someone who can then virtue signal that they are not racist but think all murder hornets just need love and compassion. The Dodo could make a moving video about a murder hornet that was forced to sting people but now gets a second chance as a therapy hornet in hospitals as an advocate for the species to prove that all insects can sting, in fact sweat bees are the most dangerous of all. We should just get educated, and can we really be so racist against murder hornets when we’ve never owned one ourselves? But wait… that would be silly. Wouldn’t it?

    • Those hornets need a better PR agency. Just the other day, I made a purchase on a furniture site and it asked me if I wanted to add on a donation to Best Friends. Um, no. These groups are allying themselves with all kinds of companies, both pet-related and not, and most people have no idea they have morphed into dedicating themselves nearly full-time into making sure your neighbors can own and breed as many pet-killing, human-killing dogs as they wish.

  6. Truly awful. This beautiful woman taken down and mauled and left to bleed out alone, in pain, and certainly terrified.

    Did the dog’s owner know what happened and not call 911? (I wouldn’t put it past a pit bull owner. Their humanity is often lacking, if they have any at all.) Was the dog found? Is that why someone stated it was a pit bull that attacked her? Has it been euthanized? There are so many questions that need answering, but I wonder how many will be. I certainly hope the attacking beast was found and promptly eliminated from the earth. I also hope the creature’s owner will be charged.

    My condolences to the devastated family. I can’t imagine how painful Mother’s Day will be for her daughters. It’s so heartbreaking.

    • She was attacked while her friend went to work. She laid bleeding for hours until found inside the home after her friend came home from work. He shot the dog after calling 911. I am her daughter sarah and I can’t believe this is the only article I’ve found about this but thank you every one for Caring. She was the most beautiful vibrant loving person in the world and I miss her more than you could ever imagine.

  7. You nailed the absurdity of the pit advocates inane belief system. The Dodo makes me gag with their anthropomorphic portrayals of pit bulls and other dangerous mauler breeds. They and Best Friends are responsible for perpetuating the dog worship insanity in this world. I would dare say they own some responsibility for the deaths by pit bulls in this country.

    I wonder if Best Friends or The Dodo ever donate to the funeral expenses of the people slaughtered by pit bull type dogs. Doubt it.

  8. An important piece that eluded us earlier has been solved. Roxie used to live at 9353 Highway 99. This is just south of Highway 99 and Martin Road. The area of the attack site. A family friend, Mark Benoit, lives just north of Martin Road. He posted a photo of Roxie on the day of her death, which is also his cover photo. On April 30, Benoit comments on the missing Danny Boy alert. “I would recommend it seems like a nice place,” referring to the Welsh area (where Roxie was visiting and died). Mark owns a large male bull terrier. This photo shows his large bull terrier and a small dog.

    Roxie also had a second profile. After her death, several people commented on her cover photo, including her daughter Sarah, who wrote that she was “brain dead.” One of Roxie’s friends, Louis, wrote, “It is very disturbing thinking about pit bull attacks. My daughter’s grandfather was bitten by a pit bull last Saturday and had to end up getting a shot and antibiotics. He lives next to someone who has decided to start raising them.” The attacking dog is unknown, but a likely culprit is Mark’s dog. Most people do not confuse pit bulls with bull terriers. Our FOIA was sent snail mail Thursday.

  9. I don’t know what I did wrong, but my comment (#7) was supposed to be in response to Sellis’ comment about the “murder hornets”. Operator error, I guess!

  10. While it is not 100% germane to the topic here, I thought I would post this video that I saw earlier today. It comes from John Correia of Active Self Protection. He has a discussion with a lawyer regarding dog attacks and the legal issues involved. It is about ten minutes long, but well worth the time.

  11. This has been updated to show that we have confirmed several aspects with the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office.

  12. My name is Sarah Parker, and this was my mother. I am just now seeing this. I can not believe there weren’t more articles about this. I miss my momma. 😢
    My mother did not raise this dog since it was a puppy. There are a few other discrepancies but I do appreciate someone caring enough to write about my beautiful mother.
