Contrary to popular belief, a dog is NOT always man’s best friend.
And unfortunately for Nancy Cherryl Burgess-Dismuke, she had to find out the hard way.
On Thursday, in Greenville, South Carolina, Burgess-Dismuke was mauled to death by her two boxer mixes. According to her neighbors, the incident occurred while the woman was play-fighting with her dogs, in the front yard of her mobile home. Her neighbors recall the three often playing in the same manner, which makes the situation all that more difficult for them to believe.
“They was trying to kill Miss Nancy.”
Neighbors say they immediately called 911, once they heard their neighbors cries for help. BuzzFeed News reports that when paramedics arrived, they found Burgess-Dismuke in an almost irreparable state. Witnesses state the attack lasted nearly 10 minutes long. Only after using weapons, found lying around, were neighbors able to scare the dogs away.
She was already so far gone. One arm was already bit completely off, the other arm was barely hanging on by a piece of meat.
Apparently, as a result of the attack, the woman had lost a significant amount of blood, resulting from several dog bites. She later went into cardiac arrest, just shortly after arriving at a hospital.
As for the dogs, they were euthanized on Friday.
