Chicago - Mrs. Mary Loretta Watson died today of wounds she suffered Monday night when her pet bulldog, Jeff, attacked her.
The dog, a pet in the family for five years, became infuriated when Mrs. Watson took a bone from it. The dog clamped its jaws on her leg, pulling her to the floor and then slashed and tugged at her body for half an hour.
Two neighbor boys tried to beat the dog off but a policeman had to shoot it before Mrs. Watson could be removed to hospital.
