Greenbrier Woman Attacked by Dogs

Local News

GREENBRIER, Ark.- A Faulkner county woman is recovering after being attacked earlier this week by two dogs. 

“I just feel weak,” says Linda Taylor, “like I hadn’t [sic] had no rest at all even though I slept over 8 hours last night.”

Taylor shudders thinking about what happened to her Monday in Greenbrier.

She was working as a home health aide for a client and was outside the house when she says the neighbors’ dogs came after her.

“I saw the dogs and tried to deter them out of the way and they just ran and attacked me,” says Taylor. “They knocked me over. I was screaming and hollering.” 

Taylor says one of the neighbors chased the dogs away. 

She was taken by ambulance to the hospital where she says she was kept overnight for excessive blood loss.  She had to have staples put in her head and arm. 

On top of all that Taylor says she’s emotionally traumatized.  

“I’m not going to go back,” says Taylor.  “We told them enough times to put the dogs up.”

She filed an incident report with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office.  The Sheriff’s office told the owners to quarantine the dogs for 14 days and informed them they could be held accountable in court. 

“People may think their dogs are good and they won’t harm you but you never know when a dog will have that nature or that instinct,” says Taylor.
