Georgia mother mauled to death by pack of 'aggressive dogs'

American news

Just days before Mother's Day, a pack of dogs attacked and killed a mother and her three children outside a Georgia middle school.

The family was waiting at a bus stop behind Brooks County Middle School in Quitman on Thursday when the dogs attacked them, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Courtney Williams, 35, was found dead in a nearby yard.

“When deputies arrived, they encountered multiple aggressive dogs on the property,” the GBI said.

Her children were rushed to the hospital with injuries. According to the family, her son suffered multiple injuries when he encountered the dogs while trying to save his younger sister's life.

Williams' sister-in-law Crystal Cox said on Facebook, “Kayden saved his sister from harm, but in doing so he saved her but he himself was attacked by the dogs.”

He shared several graphic photos, which show the boy suffering from multiple deep wounds on his arms, legs and head.

Williams' other son ran to school as dogs attacked his family and captured a man – whom Cox called “an angel” – who helped fight the dogs off the boy and rushed him to the hospital.

Cox said Kayden was “pretty badly hurt,” but all three are now recovering at his home.

It's unclear what breed the bloodthirsty hounds were, but neighbors told WALB they had been complaining about the need for animal control in the area for some time.

“People dump dogs all over the county and no one is able to get them help because there is no animal control in the county. Prayers for this woman's family. It's very sad,” one resident told the outlet.

Another lamented the timing of the tragedy – just three days before Mother's Day.

“I feel for the family and the children because now they have to celebrate Mother's Day without their mom,” she said.

The GBI is conducting an autopsy to determine the official cause of William's death.
