    A 57-year-old woman who owned 20 cats was mauled to death by two vicious neighborhood dogs outside her Ohio home on Friday morning.

    Klonda Richey's lacerated body was found naked on snow-covered Bruce Avenue, Dayton about 8.15am, thrashed by her next door neighbors' male mixed breed Bullmastiffs.

    Records have revealed Richey complained at least six times about the 60-pound canines before her horrific death, but authorities said they were never able to find the dogs.

    This case reminds me of the Diane Whipple case in San Francisco in 2001 and the dogs owners were rightly charged.

    What an awful death!

    From your link:

    "The six calls made by Richey mainly related to concerns about the dogs' barking: 'Dog is straining to get to water and food that are empty, advised is ongoing issue'."

    'We are aware of additional complaints, unfortunately, the owners have never responded to any of our calls to the best of our knowledge. We are looking into this matter,' Kumpf said."

    What a load of cr@p......the owners don't respond to the Animal Resource Ctr so they just dropped the nine complaints and didn't follow up? They could never find the dogs? GMAB

    Why was she naked? Does that make sense? She's in the road, naked and mauled. did the dogs drag her out of the house?

    That seems so odd to me.

    ETA: The article does say the dogs ripped her clothes off. :(

    They were big dogs. Sounds as if she were trying to get away from them and they were grabbing at her clothes. Awful way to die.

    These two were arrested back in September, not that it means justice for Klonda. :(

    Those dogs were obviously pit/mastiff mixes. Bullmastiffs weigh 110-130 lbs, not 60 lbs.

    Sounds like the dogs were neglected/abused (empty food and water, barking etc..) and no one cared until they killed the neighbor lady.

    That story involved Cane Corsos, which are considered livestock guardians. Many livestock guardians are very large (much larger/stronger than dogs used to protect against human threats) and also extremely independent thinkers that do NOT rely on, or listen to human commands. They were bred to protect the flocks without human guidance, so they use their own judgement.

    Problem is when <mod snip> get those dogs to "look tough" they have no idea what they have and they don't keep the dogs safely confined. I have a livestock guardian and he would brutally attack any trespasser that came into our yard or threatened me, if he wasn't kept in a fenced yard he would attack "trespassers" walking down the road near the house. He is exceedingly gentle and trustworthy with livestock (I have chickens) but is a real threat to strangers which is what he was bred for.

    The dogs have thousands of years of breeding behind them and are usually extremely intelligent animals, I hate to see them get a "bad rap" simply because they are ending up in the hands of abusive idiots. When ghetto types ask me what type of dog he is I never ever tell them, I just make something up as I hate to think of these dogs being abused/mishandled the way pits have been.

    Sonya, the dog is just being a dog -- the people need to be held responsible for their criminally irresponsible handling of the dog!

    This case was on the ID channel last night and today. Horrible case and a total miscarriage of justice all the way around IMO
