A woman who was found dead in a wooded area was mauled to death by her two dogs, according to the Goochland Sheriff's Office. There were various articles of clothing, under clothing scattered about the area not far from the body and torn into small pieces, there were patches of blood. "Dogs don't typically just out of the blue attack their owners, so there is typically some kind of provocation", she said, as per news outlets, inferring that provocation causes fear, which may have led to aggression. But while he waited for them to arrive, he went searching for his daughter in the woodlands and quickly found her mangled body.
Other friends echoed the statement, and added that before Stephens died, she had received death threats. NSW, VIC, QLD, WA and SA all have strict legislation relating to the ownership of specific breeds of dog.
He said it appeared to be a "violent attack initiated by the victim's dogs while the victim was out for a walk with the dogs".
Officials from the county's animal control department and sheriff's office spent at least an hour trying to tranquilise the animals, Agnew said. Was it actually something else that attacked the owner?
He spotted her but thought she was only hurt.
But Paul explained, "A lot of people are saying [the dogs] wouldn't guard if they killed, but the reality is if it's a resource, they may guard that as their food source or their toy the same way that a dog might guard a bone on a blanket".

Alan Shearer Trolls Arsenal After Southampton Draw
Following a 1-1 draw away to Southampton , it seems that Arsenal are well and truly out of the Premier League title race after just 16 games.
"In my 40 years of law enforcement, I've never seen anything like it", Sheriff Agnew said.
But Sheriff Agnew described the dogs as large and powerful pit bulls that might have been bred for dog fighting.
Stephens was a petite woman, 5-foot-and weighing little more than 100 pounds; the dogs are said to have a combined weight of double that.
Time will tell if authorities come to the conclusion that somehow Bethany's dogs were protecting her as her friend Barbara suggests. "I wasn't able to see the body, so I can't tell you what happened".
Asked about Norris' comments Saturday, Agnew said the evidence found at the scene, including the defensive wounds, clearly showed that the dogs were responsible for Stephens' death.
