Woman’s Death Caused by Pet

Seventy-eight year old Betty Wood was mauled to death by her own pet, a Rottweiler dog, at her home Thursday night.


Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders said local police were called to the Wood home on North Davis Street around 7 p.m. Upon investigation it was determined that the woman had been mauled to death by her dog. Friday, shortly after 11:30 a.m. a Dallas Medical Examiner determined the dog to be the cause of death.


The dog had been a family pet and kept in the house, along with other animals, for a number of years, according to Sanders. He said no one is sure what triggered the dog to attack.


The dog was quarantined at the city animal shelter overnight and will be euthanized according to Chief Sanders.
