UPDATE 01/06/14: Authorities have identified the woman mauled to death by several loose pit bulls. Christina Burleson, also known as Christine Bell, was killed by the animals early Sunday morning. The dogs also attacked two other people. Houston animal control officials now have both female pit bulls in custody, which belong to the same owner. Only one of these dogs is believed to have been involved in the attack. The dog’s owner was not home when KTRK visited, but predictably, pit bull puppies were home.
