A Uvalde woman was hospitalized Aug. 7 after she was attacked by a pair of stray dogs. Two witnesses used a shirt and a belt as a makeshift tourniquet in an attempt to slow the victim’s profuse bleeding.
 
Uvalde Police and EMS were dispatched to the 400 block of Fort Clark Road at approximately 9:13 p.m.
 
According to the police report, Rebecca Cruz said she was walking around Sacred Heart Catholic Church when two dogs lunged at her. Cruz identified one of the dogs as a white labrador and the other as a brown mixed breed.
 
Dionicio Granado Jr. and Roy Moreno were on their way home when they observed the attack. The two men rushed to Cruz’s assistance and utilized a shirt and a belt as a make-shift tourniquet.
 
Cruz was taken to Uvalde Memorial Hospital.
