IRVING, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The neighbor of a woman who was killed by her two pit bulls on Saturday said he had a run-in with the dogs in a previous incident where they bit someone.
Johana Villafane, 33, died Saturday after she was attacked by her dogs at O’Connor Animal Hospital in Irving. Responding officers had to shoot and kill the dogs because they were unable to get near the woman due to the “aggressive behavior” of the pit bulls.
Police said the dogs were quarantined at the hospital due to an incident earlier this month where they apparently bit someone.
One of the owner’s neighbors said the dogs broke through his fence during that previous incident and escaped into the neighborhood. He said law enforcement thought the dogs were his at first because they saw them going in and out of his fence.
