Woman Mauled to Death by Dogs She was Sitting. Family Warned Her The Pit Bulls Were Vicious!

A Greensboro, North Carolina family is grieving today after their daughter and mother was tragically killed.

Trena Peed, 46, was attacked and killed Thursday by two dogs she was caring for at a Vance Street home.

Police and Guilford County Animal Services were called to the attack after a neighbor called 911 around 2am.

"All I heard was her screaming in the backyard. I ran over’s dark. All I hear is her yelling and her dogs over there attacking her," the neighbor said to the 911 operator. "I can’t see anything. All I know is that they done drug her into the dark."

Authorities say Peed was watching the two dogs for a family member when she was attacked. Officials said an officer shot one of the dogs trying to save her, but she died from her injuries at a hospital. The other dog has been quarantined. At this moment, no charges have been filed.

"Whoever the owner is, they need to come forward because they say they love my daughter. This is not showing love for her right now," said Helen Harris, the mother of Trena Peed. "I understand it was not intentional but I just talked to my daughter on Tuesday and I told her you need to get (those) dogs out of your house."

Peed's daughter Waynesha believes charges should be filed.

"That's your responsibility," said Waynesha Peed. "Yeah, she was watching them (but) that's still your responsibility."

Harris said Trena was always willing to help others and would give someone the shirt of their back.

"It was just at the wrong place at the wrong time but she was just trying to help out, I guess just trying to be friendly," Harris said.

According to reporters at WFMY, This is just another blow to a family plagued by recent tragedy and trauma. Harris said she lost two grandsons, one at 17 and the other at 19. Her husband also passed away. Peed had eight children total.

"This is the worst death I ever experienced in my life and I ain’t taking it lightly and I ain’t laying down resting because I believe somebody could’ve helped my baby out there," Harris said. "Because if it was her she would’ve helped somebody. I believe somebody could’ve helped my child."

Harris said she hopes the owner of the dogs comes forward but she ultimately wants peace in the situation.

"I’m not trying to cause nobody no heartache or nothing like that but they say the dogs (were) vicious, I don’t know. I wasn’t there, but that’s what the police said they (were) vicious that’s why they shot him," said Harris.

Our prayers are with Peed's family and loved ones.
