Woman Hurt In Dog Attack

Updated: Tuesday, January 29 2013, 04:41 PM EST

A vicious dog attack sends a Buncombe County woman to the hospital and leaves her pet poodle fighting for its life. It happened Saturday in the Ricevillle community. Peggy Harwell says a pit bull bit her hands while another dog attacked her dog, Sheba.

The two dogs are now in quarantine at the Buncombe County Animal Shelter. Sheba is currently at a vet's office, but is not doing well. Harwell is waiting to find out whether she'll need a series of rabies vaccines.

Deputies say they're still investigating the case and have not issued any citations.
