The dog was apparently taken by authorities after that attack, and Urso subsequently retrieved it from animal control. Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper said she wasn’t killed by a neck injury, but by many bites to her arms, legs, and torso. “Just a lot of bites. A lot of scratching. I hate to say it but unfortunately, it was a vicious attack.”
Cooper said the attack began in the Ingleside home but that Urso managed to make it to her outdoor patio, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Daily Herald reports Urso had plans to meet up with co-workers on Saturday, and when she failed to show, they went to her house and came upon her body. Cooper noted, per WGN:
“You don’t really think about it happening with a smaller dog breed, but we forget animals can be powerful. This animal has a lot of jaw strength.”
ED: There is no information on the status of the dog, but it will no doubt be euthanized.
