An 84-year-old woman was mauled to death by two pitbulls in south Charlotte Monday afternoon, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Investigators identified the woman as Bessie Flowers.

Flowers was apparently visiting a younger relative in a townhouse on Luke Crossing Drive in the Springs Valley subdivision near the Arboretum shopping center.

CMPD Animal Care & Control officers responded to a call about an aggressive animal just before 1 p.m. When they arrived, they found Flowers with fatal dog bite injuries.

Paramedics pronounced her dead a short time later.

The attack happened while Flowers’ family was at home.
