ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Rottweiler mauled an Anchorage woman in Chickaloon on Sunday afternoon, Alaska State Troopers said.
Ethel Mscichowski, 55, was visiting a friend, Charles Lonewolf, when the 130-pound animal attacked her, troopers said. The dog severely mangled Mscichowski's right arm and injured her leg.
She lost a large amount of blood and was taken to Valley Hospital in Palmer. She was later transferred to Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, where she was listed in stable condition Monday after surgery.
Lonewolf surrendered the Rottweiler to Mat-Su Animal Control. It will be destroyed, troopers said.
Chickaloon is 76 miles northeast of Anchorage on the Glenn Highway.
