FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - An 84-year-old Fayetteville woman is recovering after she was attacked by a dog while tending to her flowers.

Local media outlets report Hallie Hall was working in her front yard Tuesday when a pit bull jumped on her and tried to bite her head. Hall says she able to get inside her house and call 911.

A boy who lives nearby was walking another dog and accidentally left a gate open, letting the pit bull out. The dog’s owner said he didn’t know the dog was vicious.

Hall was bitten on both arms and several fingers. She says she doesn’t feel safe outside anymore.

The dog is in the custody of animal control, and its owner is meeting with officials Friday to talk about getting the dog back.
