Georgia mother fatally mauled by dogs who attacked her and her children days before Mother’s Day

A Georgia mother was fatally mauled by dogs that attacked her and her children on Thursday, just days before Mother’s Day.

Brooks County deputies responded to a home in the 2000 block of Webster Road in Quitman, south Georgia, around 4:45 p.m. ET for a report of several juveniles being attacked by a dog, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

“When deputies arrived, they encountered several aggressive dogs on the property,” the GBI said in a statement. “It was determined that an individual had previously taken several minors to a local hospital.”

Courtney Williams, 35, was found dead in the backyard of the home.

In a Facebook post, Williams’ sister-in-law said the victim and her three children were attacked by a neighbor’s dogs.

Cox said one of Williams’ sons pushed his sister out of harm’s way and suffered several lacerations requiring staples. The other two children were fine but “shake themselves up and are still processing things,” Cox wrote on Facebook.

One of the children asked for help from a man who Cox said “helped save them.”

“The man helped fight off the dogs and was able to get the children in his truck to the hospital,” Cox wrote in another Facebook post.

The medical examiner’s office will conduct an autopsy on Williams to determine his cause of death, the GBI said. It is unclear at this time if anyone will face charges in connection with his death.

The investigation into the incident is active and ongoing.
