Tragedy struck a family in a harrowing incident where a mother’s valiant efforts to save her children from a pit bull attack led to her sustaining severe injuries, Your Content has learned.

The five-month-old baby boy and a two-year-old girl tragically lost their lives in the incident. The mother, Kirstie Jane Bennard, is currently battling for her life in the hospital with extensive injuries.

According to information provided by sources, Kirstie Jane Bennard, 30, exhibited immense courage when she intervened to protect her children from a vicious pit bull attack. The incident occurred on Wednesday, leaving the family shattered.

Relatives have shared heartbreaking details about Bennard’s condition following her heroic yet tragic encounter with the attacking dogs. She has been left with an ‘uncountable amount of stitches and bite marks over her entire body, including her face.’

Reports suggest that both her arms and legs have been completely bandaged and wrapped as she receives medical care. Despite the severity of her injuries, family members expressed hope that there might not be any permanent damage.

Tragically, Bennard’s courageous actions could not save her children. The infant, Hollace Dean Bennard, aged five months, and the toddler, Lilly Jane Bennard, aged two, succumbed to the ferocity of the attack, which reportedly lasted for around 10 minutes.

Relatives of the family, including Jeff Gibson, recounted how Bennard fought relentlessly to protect her children until the very end.

Following the attack, Kirstie Jane Bennard was transported to Regional One Health in what has been described as ‘critical condition.’ Her husband, Colby Bennard, was reportedly unharmed in the incident. However, it remains unclear whether he was present at home during the tragic events that unfolded at around 3:30 PM.

Further investigation into the circumstances surrounding the attack is underway. Notably, it has come to light that Colby Bennard had shared a photograph of two pit bulls on social media approximately eight years ago, referring to them as ‘house lions.’

It is currently uncertain if these are the same dogs involved in the fatal attack.

This heartbreaking incident has raised discussions about pet ownership, breed-specific legislation, and the importance of ensuring the safety of both humans and animals in residential settings.

As authorities continue to gather information, the community is left grappling with the profound loss suffered by the Bennard family and the enduring impact of the events that unfolded on that fateful day,‘according to INDEPENDENT.
