PEMBROKE — A 63-year-old woman was operated on today after she was attacked by two pit bulls inside the town limits of Pembroke, according to Bill Smith, director of the Robeson County Health Department.
Smith said the animals will be put down and their brains examined to see if they are rabid. He said the county’s Animal Control officers handled the emergency call as Pembroke’s Animal Control officer was out of town.
Smith did not have additional information, including the woman’s name, her condition, and who owned the animals and if criminal chargex had been brought.
The Robesonian is attempting to contact Pembroke police for additional information.
