Wednesday afternoon around 4pm, an elderly Shelton woman was attacked by a dog, possibly a pitbull, as she took her snouser out for a walk. The woman was riding a Little Rascle type scooter because she could no longer walk, when a large dog set upon her snouser. She had the leash wrapped around her arm for security, but sadly that just made her more vulnerable. After killing her dog, the attaking dog savaged the woman, causing her to have a heart attack. A passing neighbor beat the dog off and called for help, but the woman never regained consciousness. She was pronounced brain dead Sunday and life support was terminated.
