Interesting that even though no one witnessed the attack,
"authorities" suppose the victim did something to provoke it, as if
pit bulls only attack when provoked.

A woman who had suffered several bites from a dog during an attack in
her home died Sunday night at a local hospital, according to a city
official and officials with the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s
Office.

The dog was in the custody of animal control officials on Monday.

No other injuries were reported..

The woman was identified as Sharon Rene Baldwin, 60, according to the
medical examiner’s website on Monday.

The medical examiner’s office listed her cause of death as “mauling by
canine.”

She was pronounced dead at 10:33 p.m. Sunday at John Peter Smith
Hospital.

The attack occurred in Baldwin’s south Fort Worth home on March 28,
officials said

A man who stayed at Baldwin’s home told animal control officials that
he had found the stray dog several days before the attack.

The dog had been staying inside of the home without any problems, city
officials said.

At some point on March 28, Baldwin either rolled over the dog in her
wheelchair or fall on the canine, prompting the dog to attack her,
authorities said.

Baldwin suffered bites to her arm, shoulder and neck.

The dog was turned over to animal control and is being evaluated.

City officials said they do not euthanize all dogs that bite.

Fort Worth Woman Dies After Being Attacked By Dog Inside Her Home

April 14, 2020 at 9:49 am

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A 60-year-old woman has died after she was
attacked by a dog inside her home in Fort Worth last month, officials
said.

Officials said animal control officers were called to Sharon Rene
Baldwin’s home on March 28 in regards to the dog attack.

Baldwin was taken to the hospital but succumbed to her injuries on
Sunday, April 12.

According to officials, the investigation found that a man who lived
in the home with the victim had found the dog a week before the
attack. Officials said he was caring for the dog until its owner came
forward. The relationship between the man and the woman is not known
at this time.

Officials learned there seemed to be no issues between the two
residents and the dog until that Saturday when something happened that
led to the attack. Investigators believe the woman may have either
rolled over the dog with her wheelchair or fell on top of it.

Officials said the dog bit the woman on her shoulder, arm and neck.

According to officials, the dog’s owner eventually came forward and
surrendered the dog to animal control officers. The dog, which was a
pit bull terrier, was euthanized on Monday, April 13.

The owner is responsible for letting his dog get loose. The man who
brought it into the victim's home, and letting it have the run of the
house, rather than being safely secured, ought to be held responsible for
her death. (I realize this assumes certain facts that are not in
evidence.)
