PORT HURON (WWJ/AP) – Three dogs in Port Huron have been euthanized after they killed a woman who climbed a fence into their backyard.
Rebecca Hardy, 22, was fatally mauled last week by a pit bull and a pit bull-husky mix. Police Capt. Jeff Baker said Monday that two dogs and a puppy were put down.
Baker said it’s still unclear why Hardy entered the fenced yard, in the 1700-block of 10th Street.
Police say there were no prior complaints about the dogs and they’ve been working to figure out what Hardy was doing there. Her fiancée lives on the same street, about a block away.
Baker told the Port Huron Times Herald it “makes no sense.”
Police said Hardy suffered extensive injuries to the upper part of her body — mostly her head, face and neck. She was airlifted to a trauma center at Beaumont Hospital where she died a short time later.
Hardy’s death came about a day after a 4-year-old boy was mauled to death by pit bulls in Detroit.
