A Pennsylvania woman was mauled to death by her neighbor’s two Great Danes that she was feeding while their owner was away, according to police.

Kristin Potter, 38, of Centre Township in Perry County, died Thursday despite the efforts of emergency responders and police officers.

Emergency workers could not reach her until animal control arrived and tranquilized the dogs, according to local NBC affiliate WGAL.

Perry County Coroner Robert Ressler told the outlet that Potter had fed the dogs before and that she had gone to the house with her young son, who eventually ran to get help after the dogs attacked his mother.

“He was present at the scene, but I don’t think he was there for much of it,” Ressler said of Potter’s son. “As soon as he saw the dogs starting to attack his mother, he ran across the road to have his brother call 911.”

“Kristin just had a very beautiful personality,” said Jennifer Keefer, Kristin’s younger sister. “When you’re around her, you just feel better. When you talk to her, you just feel better. “

Keefer told WGAL that Kristin was a great artist and took a lot of pride in her land and animals.

Another Great Dane and a French bulldog were in the home but didn’t attack. A veterinarian subsequently euthanized the two Great Danes that mauled Potter, and state police continue to investigate the incident.
