Corsicana — A Navarro County woman tending to two pit bulls she’d raised since they were puppies was seriously hurt when the dogs attacked her Wednesday.

Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner said deputies and medics were called to the home near Brushie Prairie late Wednesday afternoon after the attack occurred.

Tanner said the woman was caring for the two dogs when they attacked her. Tanner said it was unclear why the dogs turned on the woman.

The injured woman was taken by air ambulance from the scene from treatment. Her identity and the extent of her injuries were not immediately available Wednesday night.

Family members of the woman destroyed the two dogs after the attack, Tanner said.
