Teresa Castellano and her 6-year-old daughter, Alysa, were visiting
Alysa's friend, Kaitlyn, at her home when terror erupted inside. The
girls were watching TV and began laughing loudly at something they
had seen. The abrupt laughter apparently startled the dogs in the
house, which began growling and barking. Sensing the two rottweilers
and pit bull were not playing around, Castellano tried to get the
girls to be quiet, but the dogs attacked them, biting Kaitlyn and
Alysa. Castellano was able to distract the dogs, which allowed the
girls time to run to safety at a neighbor's house, but by then
Castellano herself was being attacked. Two neighbors armed with
handguns fired on the dogs to get them to release the woman. One of
the armed men was bitten in the leg during the struggle. One dog was
killed, and the other two retreated back into the house. Authorities
found one dog wounded and the other lying on the floor inside. They
were taken to a local animal shelter and later euthanized.
Castellano and her daughter each required 100 stitches to close
their wounds, and Kaitlyn needed 20 stitches.
