A 73-year-old woman is fighting for her life after a dog mauled her Tuesday evening, leaving deep wounds to her head and face.
Cleveland Regional Medical Center listed Patrece Ogle as being in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.
Ogle’s home on Toney Road near Lawndale was quiet and still a day after the attack.
A rebel flag fluttered in one window, and on the front porch, dime-sized drops of blood were dried on the gray floorboards.
But Tuesday evening, the house was the scene of chaos after animal control officers say a pit bull mix attacked Ogle, leaving her face bloodied and her features nearly unrecognizable.
‘It didn’t show
The attack came just hours after animal control officers were called out to the house for the same dog.
Animal Control Supervisor Tripp Bowling said a sheriff’s office deputy called animal control about 6:45 a.m. and said the pit bull mix had jumped on Ogle and knocked her down.
Bowling said the woman wasn’t injured or bitten and told the animal control officer that she didn’t want the dog taken away.
Both Ogle and her daughter-in-law, Lisa Ogle, who is listed as the owner of the dog and also lives at the house, were adamant that the animal stay, Bowling said.
The officer who responded to the call advised the women to take the pit bull mix to the vet for rabies vaccines and to get treatment for what appeared to be mange, the incident report stated.
Bowling said other than the skin condition, both the pit bull and another dog at the home, a hound mix, appeared healthy and well-fed.
“The dog was very friendly,” Bowling said.“It didn’t show any aggression.”
The officer left.
‘All I seen was blood’
At 5:15 p.m., animal control again got a call, this time from Emergency Medical Services.
One of the dogs attacked Patrece Ogle, leaving bites and gashes on her head and face. Animal control officers believe it was the pit bull that attacked her.
“It’s probably one of the worst dog bites I’ve ever seen,” Bowling said.
Lisa Ogle has owned the pit bull since it was a puppy, Bowling said, adding he doesn’t know what provoked the attack.
Kimberly Reynolds, who lives in a mobile home behind the Ogle house, said she saw ambulances and police cars fill the driveway Tuesday evening.
She saw the victim of the dog attack being loaded into the ambulance.
“Blood,” she said.“All I seen was blood. I couldn’t sleep at all.”
Reynolds said she knew animal control officers were at the home earlier in the day, but the owners didn’t want the dog taken.
“That dog tore her face off,” she said.
“I’ve got her on a prayer list and I’m hoping and praying she’ll be OK,” said Patricia Holloway, Reynolds’ mother.
Dogs seized from home
According to the animal control report, while EMS personnel were treating Patrece, her daughter-in-law began having seizures.
Both women were taken by ambulance.
Bowling said, when officers arrived at the home, the pit bull and hound were locked in a bedroom and were acting “highly aggressive.”
Both dogs were seized and are being held at the animal control shelter.
Bowling said the dogs will be quarantined to make sure neither has rabies and will most likely be declared dangerous.
Bowling said if the dogs are declared dangerous and the owners wish to keep the animals, they will have to meet several requirements. If the owners do not wish to keep the dogs, they will be relinquished to animal control.
Bowling said the dogs will not be allowed to be adopted
