WILSON, OK-- A 75 year old Wilson woman speaks out after being attacked by her neighbor's pit bull yesterday.

Mary Williams said she had just come back from the store and was taking groceries out of her truck when her neighbor's pit bull got loose and attacked her.

Williams tried to get in the bed of her pickup truck but could not in time, the dog had grabbed her by her right calf.

"It was the most scary thing, well you just didn't know what to do, it was really hurting bad," said Williams.

Williams said she screamed and was fortunate that a neighbor was outside and heard her calls for help.

"And then the dog attacked him so he tried to jump the fence but he couldn't get over so the dog ran back across the street and he came on up there where I was and I said call the police," said Williams.

When Wilson police arrived they said the dog charged them and they were forced to shoot and kill it.
