Bowling Green Dogs Accused In Serious Attack Up For Adoption

CREATED Jun 6, 2014

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Two dogs in Bowling Green, Kentucky are waiting to be adopted into new homes.

One woman says those very same dogs attacked her so badly she had to be LifeFlighted to Vanderbilt, two weeks ago.

Katie Duncan says her mother Terri was walking her dog Odie when two terrier mixes that had lived in the neighborhood for several years started coming after her and Odie.

Katie says while her mother was trying to protect her dog she was attacked and bitten in multiple places, including her thumb so severely it had to be reattached.

Duncan's friend Mindy Oliphant says she was surprised recently that the two dogs were posted on Petfinder for adoption.

"Our main concern is they're going to be adopted into a family or an elderly lady and do it again," Oliphant said.

Oliphant says she wonders why the dogs haven't been put down.

In an email Lorri Hare, the director of the Humane Society in Bowling Green says the incident has been noted on the dog's paperwork.

"All staff members know to explain the situation to someone who may be interested" in adopting the two.

Hare says they have no proof of what dog bit.

She says despite the Duncans' story they believe the dogs were actually fighting together and Terri tried to break them all up. During that she was bitten, all over her body, they believe unintentionally.

Terri Duncan was not able to do an on-the-record interview because of possible pending litigation in the case, but she disputes Hare's account.
