Dec. 12– A Hardin County woman was airlifted Thursday to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville after being mauled by her pit bull mix dog, authorities say.
Barbara Evans, 71, lost a finger in the attack at her Olive Hill home on Smith Fork Road, according to the Hardin County Animal Services Department.
The Sheriff’s Department said Evans had multiple puncture wounds to both arms, her chest, right wrist and hands.
Reports show deputies arrived at the scene that morning to find the dog on the front porch. The male pit bull mix was described as “very aggressive toward anyone who attempted to enter the house.”
