US Woman mauled to death by neighbour’s dog in presence of her young son


Kristen Potter, 38, was mauled to death by her neighbour’s two Great Danes in front of her young son when she went to feed them while the owner was away.

The incident happened on Thursday, March 16, when two large dogs launched at the Pennsylvania woman inside the neighbor’s home, per WGAL.

Brandon Zeiders, whose fiancee is Potter’s sister, said he was told by state police the two Great Danes might have been fighting and then turned their ire toward Potter when she intervened, according to Penn Live.

Potter was with her young son when the dogs killed her. He rushed out to get help after seeing the dogs charging at his mother.

‘He was present at the scene, but I don’t think he was there for much of it,’ Ressler said, according to WGAL.

‘As soon as he saw the dogs starting to attack his mother, he ran across the road to have his brother call 911.’

Despite the efforts of emergency responders and police officers, the authorities said that the 38-year-old victim couldn’t be reached until animal control officers showed up and tranquilized the dogs.

Multiple people claimed that Sabathne’s dogs had shown aggression before

The two dogs involved in Potter’s attack were later euthanized at a veterinarian’s office.

The dogs’ owner told the outlet she was ‘heartbroken’ by the incident.

‘I’m heartbroken, I’m in shock, I’m in disbelief and I just want to die,’ Wendy Sabathne said. ‘I can’t believe this happened.’

Multiple people claimed that Sabathne’s dogs had shown aggression before.

Bill Keefer, Potter’s father, claimed the dogs had bitten his daughter two or three years ago.

State police Trooper Kelly Abati told the outlet there has not yet been a decision on whether Sabathne will face charges.
