SC Woman Suffers Amputation After Dog Attack

Animal Control has taken possession of the dogs and an investigation is currently underway.

A South Carolina woman is fighting for her life after being attacked by dogs earlier this week. 38-year-old Kyleen Waltman was walking on a road near her home in Honea Path when the attack took place. A man who witnessed the incident reportedly fired a gun in the air to scare the canines away from her. After being airlifted to a local hospital, Waltman had to have both of her arms amputated and doctors plan on taking one of her legs as well. The local sheriff’s office said Animal Control has taken possession of the dogs and an investigation is currently underway.
