Goldsboro woman mauled by dogs is fighting to recover
Posted June 29, 2014
Goldsboro, N.C. — A 71-year-old Goldsboro woman who was mauled by her neighbor’s four dogs last week will undergo her third surgery Monday, her family said.
Mildred Game was watering her plants Wednesday morning when the dogs attacked her and her pit bull, which suffered injuries and had to be euthanized. A responding sheriff’s deputy shot one of the attacking dogs, and the other three were impounded.
Game suffered severe wounds in the attack. Her son, Bobby Game, said she had hundreds of puncture wounds and gashes, and chunks of flesh missing from her body.
In an email to WRAL News, the family on Sunday thanked those who have been praying for her recovery and said Game has a long road ahead.
“Our mother remains in good spirits. She is quite a fighter, which will help her in her long recovery,” the family said.
Game remains at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.
