Pit Bulls Kill Elderly Woman In Mississippi

The 75-year-old woman who was killed by two pit bulls in Gulfport was known by neighbors to collect cans in the neighborhood

The pit bulls have been surrendered to animal control.

"Through an investigation, we determined that a woman entered a closed property through a gate, shut the gate behind her, and while inside the fenced in yard, was attacked by two dogs", said Chris Lopposer, Gulfport deputy police chief.

Bloom suffered puncture wounds on her back.

Four adults in Bloom's family also suffered bite wounds to their hands trying to separate the dogs.

The pit bulls were put on leashes by a man who left the scene without providing any personal information or information on the dogs' vaccination record. "But on the other hand as the owner of a pit, you have to be responsible".

"It was horrific, it was just bad to see that call that, that had happened to her". "And that makes me very nervous because this area isn't fenced in and another thing too is that she is a pit, and not everyone is comfortable with that".

Shahin Sadafi, chairman of local campaign group Grenfell United, said the report had left residents "disappointed and saddened". The causes of the Grenfell Tower fire are the subject of an inquiry which is due to start public hearings next week.

Area resident Veronique Lauriault takes her small dogs to the Dolores Park several times a week.

"Is it going to stop me from coming here?" We've got our dogs off-leash. "If he knows his dogs are aggressive dogs and they are incapable of being in an environment like this then that's his responsibility to acknowledge that and keep them on a leash", said Sam Rose, another San Francisco pet owner and Dolores Park regular.

They have been around for 5 years as of May 19 and have helped so many dogs in need!

Three of the victims were taken to the hospital.

Bloom was treated by a vet.
