COWETA, Okla. – An Oklahoma woman is dead after being attacked by four dogs.

Witnesses told KJRH that the woman was picking up cans along Main St. when she was attacked by three pit bulls and one Rottweiler.

Neighbors told KJRH the victim is 67-year-old Carolyn Lamp.

They say she was collecting aluminum cans to support her sewing hobby.

“When they said aluminum cans, I kinda figured it was her,” one neighbor said.

Residents who saw the gruesome scene say stray dogs have been a big issue in the area.

“About 7 o’clock this morning, I got up and shot at like four or five dogs,” said Annette Panter.

Panter told KTUL that she has frequently encountered aggressive stray dogs.  In fact, she says she always carries a gun now.

“This is where everybody drops dogs off,” she said.

The four dogs were captured by animal control and taken to the Coweta Animal Shelter.
