SUMMIT PARK, W.Va. (AP) - Police say a Harrison County woman was attacked and bitten multiple times by five dogs.

Harrison County Sheriff Albert Marano tells The Exponent Telegram (https://bit.ly/1ESPhtA ) that the incident occurred on Monday morning in Summit Park.

Marano says the woman was familiar with the dogs, which were in a cage in a neighbor’s yard. He says she was attacked when she went to the cage to pet the dogs.

The sheriff says the woman was bitten in the torso and neck area and was taken to hospital in Morgantown.

Marano says deputies found the dogs running loose in the neighborhood. Two dogs acted aggressively toward the deputies and were killed. The others were captured and taken to the county animal shelter.
