Johnny Saylor woke up to find his wife not in bed beside him. He got up to search the home for her, but still there was no sign of her. He went to the window to see if she was in the backyard, and that is when he made the gruesome discovery. His wife, Lorraine, was being mauled to death by two pit bulls.
Saylor ran down the stairs and out the backdoor to try and save his wife. He hit the dogs and chased after them, but they just turned their sights on him. The dogs began to bite and attack Saylor, but his brother was able to somehow distract them and stop them from savaging him, too.
While Saylor’s brother was distracting the dogs, Saylor ran back into the house and got one of his guns. He was able to shoot and kill one of the dogs, but the other ran away.
Lorraine Saylor was not as lucky as her husband. She died in her backyard from the injuries she sustained by the pit bulls. The owner of the dogs has been charged with owning violent animals, but allegedly he is already serving time behind bars for other crimes.
Reportedly, the second dog that ran away at the sound of gunshots returned to the Saylor’s home a day after the brutal attack. It was captured and has since been put to sleep. It appears that Lorraine Saylor was feeding the birds in her back garden when the attack took place.
Johnny Saylor says that one of his wife’s favorite things to do was feeding the birds. He says he is devastated that something she enjoyed doing so much was ruined by two vicious beasts who should have never been roaming the earth in the first place. Saylor said he will never be able to get the image of his wife lying on the ground out of his mind.
