Spartanburg, SC (WSPA) -- Three pit bulls attacked a Spartanburg woman early Wednesday morning and sent her to the hospital where she's suffering life-threatening injuries, the police said.

Spartanburg Public Safety officers were called to a home on South Center Street around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday where they saw three pit bulls attacking a woman.

The officers had to pull the dogs off the woman, and as they were doing so, one of the animals turned toward an officer who shot and killed it. The other two pit bulls were seized by animal control officers and are being quarantined at the Spartanburg Human Society.

The victim, who hasn't been identified, was said to be profusely bleeding and unconscious as she was taken to an area hospital, the report said.

Officers said the woman was stable but suffering life-threatening injuries with severe bites to her face, arms, and abdomen.
