A mother-of-three has passed away in her own home after her two dogs attacked her despite never showing any signs of aggression before.
The incident occurred in Cheshire, UK, where 44-year-old mum Elayne Stanley was mauled to death by her dogs DJ and Billy.
According to the reports, the emergency services were called to the scene after the woman’s daughter rushed out of the home yelling “the dogs are attacking mum.”
According to 39-year-old Bev Hall who lives in the house across Stanley’s home, “Elayne was at home with her daughters and she was arguing with her daughter” during the incident.
“We were here putting the tea on and the next thing her daughter runs in screaming for help saying ‘the dogs are attacking mum,’” she recalled.
“We both dropped everything and ran over barefooted. The living room door was closed and Elayne was behind it so we couldn’t get in.
“I could hear a dog growling and scratch, we threw all sorts to and banged on the windows to try and distract the dogs.
“Then the police were called, my partner and a couple of the neighbors started throwing bricks at the dogs from the side door.
“Once the dogs were in the back garden my partner locked them out… By the time the paramedics came, there was nothing they could do.”
As the witness added, Stanley had the two dogs for years and they never showed any signs of aggression.
“I have never known those dogs to be violent. My kids have slept on those dogs and used them as pillows, I can’t believe it,” Hall added.
“They used to bark when you went in and Elayne had started shutting her curtains because they would bark when people went past but I have never known the dogs to act that way.
“The police tried to tranquilize DJ three or four times but he wouldn’t calm down, he had the taste of blood so he went for the police officers and they had to put him down. He was shot twice but Billy the girl dog was tranquilized and taken away.”
Another neighbor, who decided to stay anonymous, also spoke out about the incident and said:
“They always seemed like they were nice enough dogs, they were never out of control. You don’t know what’s provoked it. I’ve heard people saying there was an argument but you just don’t know.”
