Redding Police are investigating the death of a woman who was attacked by her own dog. The woman was transported to Danbury Hospital late Friday night, where she later succumbed to her injuries.
The Deacon Abbott Road woman's identity is being held pending family notification. Redding Police Chief Douglas Fuchs says they are waiting for autopsy results to determine the official cause of death, but notes that the attack itself might not have been the exact cause.
The mixed breed dog is in the custody of Animal Control during the investigation.
