She turned and ran towards State Highway 2. The animals pulled her to the ground and continued the attack for several minutes until a car pulled over and the driver tooted the horn to scare the dogs. The second victim, aged 36, was walking along a nearby road when the dogs circled her at 3.15pm. She jumped a fence to escape, but one of the dogs followed and jumped at her, biting her arm.
