A dog owner’s desperate efforts to escape a ferocious mauling by her own pet have been caught on security camera.
The merciless attack happened in an apartment complex in Prados del Este neighborhood in Cúcuta, Colombia on Thursday.
La Opinion, a local outlet, reported that the 25-year-old woman was bending down to tie her shoes in her bedroom when the four-year-old dog abruptly snapped.
Police told the outlet:
“Her reaction was to crawl to the door and go out into the hallway, hoping a neighbor would help her,”
“When the animal jumped on her, the only thing she thought was that if she stayed on the 5th floor, no one was going to rescue her,”
Unfortunately, no one came to her aid so she knew her only chance of escape was into the elevator but as the horrific footage shows, the animal followed her in.
Warning: Disturbing Footage.

Terrifying. We wish her a speedy recovery.
