YAKIMA, Wash.--A Yakima man continues to recover after a pack of vicious dogs left him with deep bite marks all over his arms and legs.
Oreo anxiously awaits for his owner, Eddie Gefroh, to get out of the hospital. The two were on their daily walk earlier this week when they encountered a pack of Pit Bulls along Division Street.
Eddie's wife, Lorraine Gefroh, said her husband scooped up Oreo and tossed him to the side. That's when the Pit Bulls viciously attacked Eddie.
"Shook his shoes off, one shoe was way over here, the other shoe was way over there," said Lorraine. "They dragged him about 50 feet all over the place back and forth."
Lorraine said her husband suffered lacerations on both arms, bite marks all over his legs and even a few on the back and side of his head. His clothing shows just how much blood he lost.
"I almost went to my knees and Leah, she said mom, you need to be strong," said Lorraine. "I said I don't need to be strong in this, I have a right to get blubbery if I want too, and I couldn't believe. And I saw Ed's arm flapping with skin."
Lorraine said her husband is still alive today because of David Garza. Garza was working nearby when he heard the attack and ran over to beat off the dogs. Lorraine says if he wasn't at the right place at the right time, her husband could have been killed.
"They make it so the little dog, okay it's your turn to go for the throat," said Lorraine. "They were teaching the dog to kill."
Lorraine said she knows who the wild dogs belong to and wants to see someone take responsibility for this ruthless attack.
The Pit Bulls are also believed to be the same dogs that attacked a police officer earlier that night. Officers said they've set traps to catch the remaining Pit Bulls, who are believed to be in the Southeast area of Yakima.
