Woman left disfigured after her pitbull attacked her and began eating her alive

A woman was almost eaten alive by her pet pitbull when it attacked her and devoured half her arm.

Tya Lucas, 41, was at home in Lewisville, Texas, introducing her new puppy, Roo, to her friend Peter, 33, on May 16 when her pit bull, Hercules, attacked her. 

Tya Lucas said: "The puppy went to jump on the couch so I went to pick the puppy up — and my friend told him to get down."That’s when Hercules lunged at Peter and sunk his teeth into his neck.


"The pit bull jumped on my friend’s neck and he started bleeding. I was like ‘What the f–k?!’ He was latched onto the back of his neck," she said.


TTya told Kennedy News she sprang into action and pried the pit bull off her friend and shoved him into the safety of the bathroom.


That’s when Hercules turned his aggression on Tya. She said: "He must have smelled [Peter’s] blood all over me and started attacking me. I don’t remember a lot of it. I remember looking down and my flesh being torn off my arm.


"I don’t remember the feeling of it, I remember screaming, ‘Hercules, it’s me.’ " 


The dog tore off two-thirds of Tya’s right arm, ate her bicep and sank its teeth into her leg and foot.

They put a tourniquet on my arm and the doctor said if he hadn’t been there to do that at that exact moment, then I wouldn’t have made it until the ambulance got there."


Tya was rushed to the hospital, where she was put on a ventilator for two days. She stayed in the hospital for 19 days, where she had hundreds of stitches across her arm, leg and foot and five operations to cut the dead skin away.


Tana and Harley had found Hercules abandoned at the side of the road, covered in cigarette burns, two years earlier.


But Tya says Hercules had never shown signs of aggression before and even slept in bed with her the night before the attack. Animal Control Officer Amanda Navarro was called to the scene and used a tether pole to secure the dog despite his consistent thrashing.


Tya and Tana surrendered Hercules to police at the scene and he was put down soon after.


The incident left Tya terrified of dogs.
