She was bitten on her side and her dog was killed in the attack.

White was taken to the hospital — where she received a series of shots, including a rabies vaccine.

“It came out and attacked me, then it attacked my dog,” she said, “which ended up killing my dog. He literally shredded my dog and I myself am pretty banged up.”
