Woman Recovers After Vicious Dog Attack
CINCINNATI (Angenette Levy) -- A Roselawn woman is surrounded by friends and family as she recovers from a brutal attack by her neighbor's dogs.
Beulah Sheafe was attacked as she walked down Sunnybrook Drive Saturday night. She is in serious condition but has been taken off a ventilator and is talking.
Her daughter says she's as feisty as usual which is a good sign. But she has a long way to go in her recovery.
It's been a long four days for Susan George-Rogers as her mother, Beulah Sheafe, recovers from an attack by two pit bulls.
"She has had surgery on her skull, she's had surgery on her arms, surgery on her legs and her left buttock and her left breast."
George-Rogers says the next door neighbor's dogs attacked her mother as she walked to the store on Sunnybrook Drive Saturday night. Sheafe remembers everything.
"The owners were standing with their garage open with the dogs and when they saw her they just attacked."
The dogs owner, Sylvester Forte, didn't want to talk on camera. But he said he tried to stop the attack and he is sorry for what happened.
Susan George-Rogers says a woman passing saved her mom, "I want to say thank you. If she had not stopped I don't know what would have happened."
Last year, George-Rogers says a dog from the neighbor's yard attacked one of her mom's dogs. That dog burrowed under the fence. Her mother put up a chain link and wood fence to keep her dogs safe.
As she stays by her mom's side, Susan George-Rogers is grateful for the support her family's received. She says her mother typically runs five miles a day and she is very healthy. Hopefully that will help in her recovery.
Sheafe is due for more surgery Wednesday morning to repair damage done to her legs.
Police shot and killed one of the dogs Saturday night. The SPCA Cincinnati has custody of the other dog. Their owner could face charges.
