why I carry

It's not just in the event of warding off bad guys.

You may need it for a dog attack; the third this summer in the Cincinnati area....

A 59-year-old woman is dead after her family's dog attacked her Monday afternoon in Madison Township.

The family refers to the dog as a pit bull, but its breed has not been determined by law enforcement officials, according to a news release from the Butler County Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. Melissa Gerhardt, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office, said a neighbor called 911 to report the attack in the 4700 block of Eck Road just after 1 p.m.

"She was out back and saw the victim being attacked in her backyard," she said. "We don't know what prompted the attack."

Cindy Whisman suffered multiple injuries to her face, neck and body, according to the release. She was pronounced dead at the scene, Gerhardt said.

Whisman's husband and a child were home at the time of the incident, but no one else was harmed.
