Dog Attack Kills One and Injures Two

As 3 people, 2 women and one man, were walking through a neighborhood one night around 2 am, 2 dogs attacked them. They were walking near the 8200 block of Leonora near Glen Prairie in Houston. The mauling led to the death of one woman—she was declared dead at the scene—serious injuries in the other—she was transported to Ben Taub Hospital—and minor injuries to the man. Houston Animal Control was able to respond and they caught one of the dogs. Officers returned to the scene to speak with the owner of the dogs, but he had fled and is presumed to have taken the other dog with him.
