A Texas woman had part of her hand amputated after being mauled by a dog in her own backyard, according to police and local reports.
The 50-year-old woman was attacked in Katy, a town about 25 miles west of Houston, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, according to the Cy-Fair Fire Department.
Multiple witnesses told KPRC-TV that the pooch in question belonged to the woman.
She was bitten multiple times, most severely on her hand, leaving doctors no choice but to partially amputate the limb, according to ABC13.
The victim could be seen being wheeled away from the scene on a stretcher in photos released by the fire department.
She had to be air-lifted to a hospital via helicopter and was listed in critical condition.
More details about the circumstances of the attack weren’t immediately released.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating the incident.
