A woman died from an apparent dog attack Sunday morning in a southeast Houston neighborhood, police said.

Three victims were attacked around 2 a.m. on Glen Prairie near Leonora by at least two female pit bulls, according to authorities. The dogs are estimated to be about 1-year-old and 30 pounds, according to the City of Houston Animal Control manager.

A woman in her 40s, who was homeless and often seen in the neighborhood, died at the scene of multiple wounds, police and witnesses said.

A second victim is being treated at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. A third person suffered minor injuries.


That man, 21-year-old Osby Pineles, who lives in the neighborhood, said the woman was already dead and a dog appeared to be eating her when he approached the body to try to get the dog away.

The dog then attacked him – bloodying his legs and arms.
