North Dakota woman mauled by dogs still in hospital

MINOT, N.D. — A woman mauled by two dogs in a Des Lacs home about a week ago remains hospitalized in Minot.

The Minot Daily News reports that the hospital is not releasing information on 46-year-old Lori Amsden's condition at the request of the family.

Authorities say Amsden was attacked by the dogs last Thursday while she was baby-sitting in another couple's home.

The Ward County Sheriff's Office says the dogs were pit bulls, but owner Anna Heppler says they were a mixed breed. The dogs were euthanized.

No charges have been filed in the case but county prosecutors are reviewing it.
