    Scary :( I can't think of many worse ways to go than being mauled.

    She was killed by the two Persa's. There is a girl on another forum that knew her :/

    I read somewhere that they didn't know which dog killed her. I think it's very tragic either way.

    I don't know, maybe I'm wrong for thinking this but I think that's a LOT of things to stack up against yourself- 5 powerful dogs of breeds of which all breeds are known to have some degree of DA/SSA, all males (at least one pit and the two presas are males for sure, but something I read said all dogs were male), one non-resident dog (presa), all dogs in the house and not segregated at all (assuming so if they couldn't tell which had killed her that they were all together)... and just one person to separate them if anything went wrong.

    You're right, Laur. Very, very bad judgment. And a huge tragedy, one that Dogsbite.org is bound to make 1000X worse. Her family is going through enough without having their personal tragedy turned into propaganda.

    I have actually known Rebecca for a long time online and she was a wonderful person, friend, and, rescuer. This was unfortunate and I really miss her. :( Maybe she was trying to break up the fight between the Presa's and they redirected on her? She worked with various breeds, even the bigger ones. Her APBT was a registered therapy dog, so I doubt that dog had anything to do with biting her. I read that her friend in person thought she fell and hit her head trying to break up the dog fight. Super sad about this one as I knew her very well and just got back in touch with her. :( May she rest in peace. :'(

    Just a sad situation with senseless death all around. I guess since its "just dogs" its easier to just kill 'em all then to actually investigate.

    Like Laur said, there were some risks by the sound of it.
    I didn't know her, her dogs or the real story though.
    Terribly sad for everyone involved.
