Woman Attacked By Dogs

A woman is recovering from dog bites on her arms and legs after deputies said five Pit Bulls attacked her just outside her Spencer home Monday morning.
Deputies said Mary Wolf had just gotten out of her vehicle at her house on Woodhollow Road when the dogs attacked her.
She got back in her car, and couldn't call for help.
About an hour later, deputies said a neighbor noticed her in her car and they called 911.
Wolf was taken to Midwest City Regional Hospital. Deputies said she was given stitches.
A neighbor owns the dogs.
Deputies said that neighbor has agreed to euthanize them.
Deputies will now determine whether or not to file any charges.


Update May 31, 2010 11:20am - KFDA reports that Ms. Wolf is 46-years old.

Update May 31, 2010 5:40pm - KSBI reports that Ms. Wolf noticed some neighborhood dogs in her yard and went outside to greet them. Once outside, she was attacked.

Update June 2, 2010 7:49am - KFOR describes Ms. Wolf as "still shaken up" over the attack.
"Literally, I thought 'If I fall down, I'm a goner,'" Wolf said.
The dogs are said to all be about 8-months old.
Neighbors say they have been complaining about the dogs for a year after they or their animals were attacked.
"Just about everybody down here has had to deal with them at one time or another," Bill Newton said. "They're bold. They come right up in the yard. I've lost two cats and a little dog to them."
An animal control officer picked up the dogs to be checked for rabies and euthanized.

D.A. Files Charges in Dog Attack Case

The Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office has formally filed charges in an incident where the victim was attacked by a group of pit bulls.

The D.A.'s Office has filed a charge of failure to restrain a dangerous dog against Ulonda Jackson, whose dogs attacked a woman on May 31, 2010 in the 5100 block of Woodhollow Road.

The victim was attacked by the dogs in front of her house and was able to get away by finding shelter from the attack in her vehicle, where she screamed for help.

Oklahoma County woman charged in dog attack

The owner of several dogs that attacked an Oklahoma County woman in May could face up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.
Ulonda Jackson, 48, was charged June 24 with a misdemeanor count of failure to restrain a dangerous dog.
On May 31, several pit bull-mix dogs escaped from Jackson's property at 4509 Northern Hills Road, according to an affidavit filed with the charge.
Mary Wolf, 48, was bitten and clawed by four dogs outside her home on nearby Woodhollow Road before taking shelter in her Jeep. She was trapped about 20 minutes before a neighbor summoned help.
"I'm going to have some pretty big scars on my legs,” Wolf said recently. "But I'm OK. No infection or anything.”
An Oklahoma County deputy recognized some of the dogs from a previous attack less than a month earlier, the affidavit states.
On May 3, three dogs bit a 7-year-old boy, who needed stitches on his head and arm, the affidavit states. Jackson, the owner, was warned that she could not allow the dogs to roam freely and said she would get rid of them.
She didn't. After Wolf was attacked, four of the dogs were euthanized at the Midwest City Animal Shelter.
Jackson could not be reached for comment.
