PHOTOS: Women Viciously Attacked During 30-Minute ‘Feeding Frenzy’

Isabella George, 19, and Rebekah Forgey, 20, were jogging on a rural road in Carroll County, Indiana when they were attacked by a pack of four pit bulls. The dogs charged at them from an unkempt property and viciously mauled the cousins for 30 minutes. Isabella suffered deep puncture wounds all over her body, while Rebekah had 75 percent of her scalp torn off.

Photos shared by Isabella's mother depicted the deep puncture wounds covering her body. Both women sustained severe injuries, but Isabella was in stable condition at home, while Rebekah was airlifted to another hospital and admitted to the ICU. She would require surgeries, including muscle and skin grafts, to repair her torn flesh and muscle.

A motorist intervened by driving her truck into the field, scattering the dogs and rescuing Isabella and Rebekah before calling 911. All four dogs were later located and euthanized. The police called for charges against the dogs' owner, Richard Darter, who turned himself in and was charged with eight counts of dog bite liability causing serious bodily injury.

Authorities believed that the dogs' aggression may have been due to being underfed. Darter had previously been cited for not controlling his dogs and allowing them to roam unleashed. The motorist's timely intervention saved the women's lives, and Sheriff Toby Leazenby emphasized the importance of responsible pet ownership.

The attack was described as a "feeding frenzy," and the women fought desperately to protect themselves. While their injuries were severe, they were fortunate to have survived. The incident highlighted the need for responsible pet ownership and stricter regulations to prevent such attacks in the future.
