Woman injured by her pit bulls

From The Register-Mail

Officers responded to 630 N. Cedar St. Friday in response to a woman who had been injured trying to separate her two fighting pit bulls.

The dogs were still fighting inside when police arrived. Junie Theobald, 54, answered the door soaked in blood coming from her arms. Her left hand appeared to be broken.

The two pit bulls, Sam and Zeus, stopped fighting when an officer banged on the window, at which point officers entered the house and secured Sam with a pole lasso provided by animal control officers. Zeus showed aggression toward the officers, and was captured later with the help of Theobald’s daughter Terah Clewell, 31.

The dogs were turned over to the Prairieland Animal Welfare Center for euthanization.

Theobald was taken to Galesburg Cottage Hospital and treated for her wounds, which included a broken hand and bite marks to both arms. Due to the seriousness of her injuries, Theobald was transferred to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
