SATSOP, Wash. (AP) -- An 81-year-old Satsop, Wash., woman is recovering in a Seattle hospital after she was attacked by two pit bulls at her home.

Grays Harbor County sheriff's Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Pimental says the woman lives with her grandson and his wife. She was home alone when she was attacked Monday night by the family dogs.

She was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center after her grandson and his wife returned home and found her.

Pimental says the grandson shot one dog and was about to shoot the other when deputies intervened. That dog is now under a 10-day quarantine. The deputy says the dog will likely be deemed dangerous.

KIRO-TV reports that Gloria Boswell is in satisfactory condition, although she faces surgeries to repair extensive injuries to her right arm.
