Pit bulls mauls animal rescue worker

The victim of a pit bull attack speaks out after the animal mauls her.

"As I'm trying to open this up. He took my leg, and is just ripping it, ripping it from the back here", describes Carole Chuple.

She works for Pet Haven Rescue. During an evaluation of the pit bull, it attacked her. The dog bit her stomach and leg.

She believes if it hadn't been her training for these situations, she would have died. "Typically, what you don't want to do is yell and scream and run. These are three things that will heighten the aggression and stimulate the dog."

Luckily, the owner of the dog showed up during the attack and was able to control it.

Carole went to the hospital with severe gashes in her leg and stomach and required surgery.
