Kentucky authorities believe that a woman was eaten by dozens of her pet wolf-dogs after she died.
The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office told WFIE-TVthat when they conducted a welfare check on 67-year-old Patricia Ritz, they found a human skull and jawbone as 50 hybrid wolf-dogs roamed her Fordsville property. Officials believe they are the remains of Ritz.
WHAS-TV reports that neighbors called authorities after she wasn’t seen for more than a week. She reportedly told her neighbors that she wasn’t feeling well recently.
Ohio County Animal Control came to Ritz’s property in an effort to gather up the dogs, as many were malnourished.
“I’ve been fighting tears a lot today,” Tracey Ward from the Ohio County Animal Control told WFIE. “I cannot understand why someone would live like this and put animals through this.”
