The owner of the dog — not the victim — could receive a citation for not registering one of the animals. Officials have not determined if that will happen.
“We believe these dogs were fighting over food and when the homeowner tried to break it up, she got attacked at that point,” said Trotwood Deputy Chief John Porter.
Officials will continue to investigate the incident.
