A city councilman in the New Orleans suburb of Westwego wants to get tough with pit bull owners.

Linda Henry was mauled by three of her four pit bulls back in March. Her husband, Clarence, says he never wants another pit bull, and he does not agree with a petition against tougher pit bull laws.

Linda described what happened: “They just grabbed me. One grabbed this arm and the other grabbed the other arm and they just pulled me down, and I was screaming and hollering. They grabbed my left leg and ripped all that up then they tried to get my eyeball out. They ripped my eyelids off, they bit my lip, then they grabbed my head.”

Linda lost both arms, an eye, and an ear in the attack.
