A Lamar County woman is recovering at a Plano hospital after she was attacked by a pack of five dogs in Deport Saturday. Reportedly, 74-year-old Jackie Brooks was visiting her sister and had gone for a walk on CR 16080 when she was attacked. She suffered severe injuries to her legs, chest, and back. A passerby spotted Brooks in a ditch and helped her until EMS arrived.
The dogs, who belonged to a resident of the county road, have been quarantined at the Paris Animal Shelter. Lamar County deputies are investigating. It’s uncertain if the dogs’ owner will face charges.
