SIERRA VISTA, AZ - A Sierra Vista-area woman is recovering after she was attacked by at least three dogs east of the city.
The police department says the woman was transported to the hospital with injuries to her face and head.
A witness says the woman was walking her dog when she was attacked Wednesday. The victim had lacerations to her face and head.
Area resident James Corcoran tells the Sierra Vista Herald about eight people gathered around the woman and her dog and attempted to fight off a brown boxer, a white pit bull, as well as another dog.
Corcoran says he aimed his 45-caliber handgun at the brown dog and fired, hitting the dog, which ran off along with another dog.
He then turned to the pit bull, and fired off one round into its shoulder.
