U.S: Illinois woman mauled to death by her rescue French bulldog

An Illinois woman was mauled to death by her rescue French bulldog in an attack that police described as “gruesome,” according to reports Wednesday.
Lisa Urso, 52, was found dead in her Ingleside home by a friend Saturday evening, according to WGN.
“[The injury] wasn’t the neck, most were in her legs and arms. Some on her torso as well. Just a lot of bites. A lot of scratching,” Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper told the local station. “I hate to say it but unfortunately, it was a vicious attack.”

Cooper said Urso had recently adopted the French bulldog, which had been bred to fight. The dog was found with blood on its coat.
“You don’t really think about it happening with a smaller dog breed but we forget animals can be powerful. This animal has a lot of jaw strength,” Cooper said, adding that although French Bulldogs are a smaller breed, they can deliver powerful bites.
The killer canine, whose name wasn’t reported, had also recently attacked Urso’s boyfriend, prompting her to take the animal temporarily back to the shelter, Cooper said. But she eventually brought the rescue dog back home again.
Urso had been home alone when cops were called to the “gruesome scene,” Fox Lake Police Chief Jimmy Lee told the Lake Mchenry Scanner. The dog attacked Urso inside her home before she fled outside to the patio, where she died.
The canine culprit and Urso’s two other dogs, including a border collie and a second French bulldog, were seized by animal control officers at the home on Monday night.
Lee didn’t immediately return The Post’s request for comment Wednesday.
