Pit bull attack leaves Texas grandmother hospitalized with over 100 stitches

"She has over 100 stitches, so she's very uncomfortable."

A grandmother was savagely mauled by three pit bulls while walking down a neighborhood in Austin, Texas.

The brutal attack left Maria Perez, 55, with wounds requiring more than 100 stitches and now the family says they want justice.

On Monday, Perez was taking an evening stroll with her nephew near her home in Round Rock. A neighbor opened their front door and three aggressive pit bulls leaped out. The dogs started running towards Perez and her nephew. The pair were chased down a dead-end street but the nephew was able to leap out of the way, which left the pit bulls fixated on Perez.

"He was able to get away very quickly to come and get my dad," Maria's daughter, Cristina Perez, told the Daily Mail. "And when he got away, the dogs went after her and attacked her."

Perez was able to make her way back to her home when neighbors saw what was happening and intervened. The first neighbor to come to the rescue was also attacked. Perez and her neighbor were both transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

"Her cuts are very, very deep and very painful," Cristina said. "And she has over 100 stitches, so she's very uncomfortable."

A spokesman for the Round Rock Police Department said in a statement to Daily Mail that they had captured the pit bulls and cited the owner.

"On October 9, officers responded to the 1500 block of Merrell Cove in response to an unprovoked dog attack involving two victims with significant injuries. One victim was walking on the sidewalk when three dogs exited a residence after the front door was left open and attacked her," the statement reads. "In an attempt to help the victim and divert the dogs' attention, a nearby neighbor was also attacked. Both victims were transported to a local hospital for injuries. A seizure warrant was issued, and the three dogs have been taken to the Williamson County Animal Shelter to be quarantined."

The dogs' owner received three citations, one for each dog, and was among the samaritans attempting to beat off the animals leached onto Perez, police said.

"We want my mom to get justice for what she endured," Cristina told the outlet. "She went through something very traumatic. We want her to know that the dogs will never, ever hurt another person again."
