Please review our comment policy.

  1. Seems odd to me that this woman was out at 2:30am, especially when she knew her neighbor had at least 12 junkyard dogs. Sounds like he was painting the victim to be “eccentric.” Was this a case of her doors not being secured and the dogs muscling their way in?

    As for the attack occurring on her neighbor’s property, we know packs of dangerous dogs drag their victims. How did he have time to shoot the 12 junkyard dogs? Had he already called 911?

  2. Sadly since the death was on the dog owner’s property I doubt there will be charges.
    I suspect the dogs attacked the victim on her property and dragged her over but this will probably go down as “trespassing” and “the dogs doing their job”. For some reason canine booby traps are A-OK as far as the law is concerned. Rig up a shotgun trap and you will go to prison fpr many years. Have a dozen or so attack dogs and usually you wont even get charged.

  3. That fence may be made of metal but it doesn’t look very sturdy. It looks flimsy. Is he implying that maybe the victim set them free? He’s so effusive with his praise for the victim I’m wondering if he’s not talking out of both sides of his mouth.

  4. “He didn’t want to wait for the ambulance, so he drove her to meet them” … yeah sure-he just didn’t want a bunch of personnel showing up on scene nosin’ around before he or someone else in his household had time to straighten up a few things on the property
    And we know how it goes-even when investigators went to check out the scene they weren’t going to find any evidence that attack began on her own property because they wouldn’t look for any such evidence
    She might have heard dogs attacking another animal or pet and went to try and help too and they could also break into her home like Nunzia mentioned-and if she lived alone we will probably never know
    And that whole calling her eccentric-he is trying to paint her as a crazy nut that did crazy things so as to create a certain narrative in case a real investigation takes place to try and explain what situation put the woman outside at 230 am

  5. 2:30am??!!

    Did she hear something and go out? Or couldn’t stand the excessive barking and so, went out to tell the dogs to shut up?

    Lab mixes. Uhm….Okay…Sure.

    Mystery? It’s not a mystery that pitbulls and huskies can scale 6ft fences. It happens so often it’s practically a selling point.

    Is there any concrete proof she was ever in the dog owners’ yard?

    Another nice older lady killed by a pack of dogs.

    • There is a lot of unverified information (such as the owner gunning down 12 dogs), however, the county did state, “by multiple dogs on the dog owner’s property.” It seems they lived next door to each other.

      The Cullman County Commission shared this statement:

      “With heavy hearts, the Cullman County Commission and Animal Control staff must report that a Cullman County citizen, Ronda Persall, lost her life in an unfortunate attack by multiple dogs on the dog owner’s property. The dogs involved in the incident are confined and being tested during this ongoing investigation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this difficult time.”
