The Bibb County sheriff's office says they've cited a dog owner after an attack that seriously injured a woman last week.

They say 20-year-old Amber Tripp was cited Monday on two counts of failing to restrain her pit bulls and two counts of failing to inoculate them.

Those dogs reportedly escaped their pen last week while Tripp was on vacation.

The sheriff's department said it happened Thursday at the trailer that Tripp rents at 5411 Houston Road

A Bibb County deputy shot and killed the pit bulls after they attacked Tripp's neighbor, 69-year old Margaret McNicholas.

She suffered wounds to the face, neck, legs and arms.

Both charges against Tripp are misdemeanors. The sheriff's office says she was served around 4 p.m. Monday.
