After 74-year-old Emmabelle Easter was attacked by a pack of dogs near her home in Lucasville, she spent eight days in the hospital. Now, she is recovering at home.
“They just started tearing me to pieces,” Easter said. “I screamed and screamed and screamed and finally a neighbor came.”
Easter said she tried to use pepper spray on the dogs, but it didn’t help. She said that neighbor was able to jump in and fight off some of the dogs before calling 911.
Easter was flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center and spent time in the Intensive Care Unit. She has wounds all over her arms, a bandaged and infected leg where the dogs tore off a section of skin, and staples in her scalp to close up a massive wound.
