The remaining pitbull involved in a vicious attack on a woman at Sundre Mobile Estates was destroyed on Oct. 9 following a dangerous dog hearing in Calgary.

On Aug. 18, Sundre RCMP were called to a home at the trailer park around 2 a.m., where they were told two pitbulls mauled a 26-year-old Calgary woman. The other dog involved in the attack was shot by police when it charged them.

The woman was found lying in a pool of blood behind a closed bedroom door and was so badly injured that emergency responders thought she was dead.

Lawyers for the Town of Sundre pursued the dangerous dog hearing, which was held on Oct. 4 before Justice D. L. Veldhuis.

Rita Phillip, 57, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault in connection with the attack. She is accused of ordering her two dogs to attack Deanna Wolfe.

Phillip remains in custody and returns to Didsbury provincial court on Nov. 5 to enter an election and plea.
