Antoinette Brown

*The 911 calls came into dispatch in rapid succession. Each caller seemingly more frantic than the last. They were reporting a horrible scene playing out right before their eyes. Their neighbor, Antoinette Brown, was being mauled by a pack of loose dogs, and there was nothing they could do to save her.

According to the 52-year-old woman’s family, the dogs devoured her like they were “eating a steak.”

The horrific incident happened in early May of this year, but what puts it in the news now is Tuesday’s release of the chilling audio (I can’t bear to listen to it, but I am sure a woman screaming for her life as she is savagely attacked by wild dogs is nothing less than chilling).

You can hear the audio yourself below.

The calls also reveal how the mauling affected Brown’s neighbors, who felt helpless to intervene. Both callers sound panicked, but tell dispatchers they are too afraid to try to save her.

“She’s out there begging for somebody to help her,” Jackie Humphrey, who was the first person to call, told the 911 dispatcher. “I know some dogs was out there and somebody came and ran them off. But she’s still out there moaning and groaning and I’m scared to go outside.”
