Pet Viciously Attacks Elderly Woman - Eats Her Alive

Elizabeth Rivera loved dogs. So much so that she had four of them, all of them pit bulls. She cared for them, sheltered them and fed them. The very dogs that brought comfort to the 71-year-old were also responsible for her demise.

Rivera of Detroit was murdered by one of her own pit bull dogs in her own home. According to the Detroit Free Press, Rivera died of a crush injury to her neck. The death has been ruled as an accident.

Detroit Police were called to her home around 8 p.m. at night where she died at the scene. There were four dogs in the home. One big pit bull knocked her down and charged at her throat, severing her jugular vein. The dog was taken away by animal control and police didn’t release any further details.

Authorities said it’s unclear why Rivera’s dog attacked her

"We have no idea and even family members are baffled," Capt. John Serda told Click on Detroit. "I feel so bad for the family members to have dogs that belong to your family do something like this is beyond comprehension."

All of the dogs were taken into custody by Detroit Animal Control. They were unable to provide any additional details since the incident was still under investigation.

"My heart just goes out to them and their family," neighbor Saira Barrera told Click on Detroit.
