Union County Sheriff's deputies say three pit bulls didn't just attack an elderly woman but also the paramedics trying to treat her.

It happened Saturday afternoon near Morganfield. Deputies say the three pit bulls knocked down a gate and started attacking the elderly woman who lived next door. When paramedics and other deputies arrived, they say the dogs started attacking them too.

Deputies say the dogs were owned by a man who had been in jail for two weeks but during that time Brandie Wadell, 33,  was looking after them. Wadell was cited for three counts of harboring a vicious animal. The elderly woman was taken to the hospital with injuries to her arms and legs.
