Carey had five dogs living with her at the time of her death. One of them was a pit bull she had owned for six years. The Georgia Perimeter college student had taken in another pit bull and a boxer mix, along with a Presa, a large Spanish breed.

Carey was also dogsitting a Presa owned by Jackie Cira, who discovered her friend's body Sunday afternoon after she failed to show up for work at Alpharetta's Loving Hands Animal Clinic.

"It looked like she had fallen and hit her head," said Cira, who lives in Loganville.

Officers initially thought they may be dealing with a homicide, said DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish. But it soon became clear that her attackers were four-legged.

With the consent of Carey's parents, the dogs were euthanized Wednesday, Parish said.

Humans place way to much importance upon the thought that animals cared for will return that kindness with real love. I have been guilty of that factor many times myself but it is a quicksand footing in the lifestyle of folks such as this compassionate young lady who lost her life so tragically. Sometimes it starts as a turf war between two dominent dogs and when a human steps into the middle to control the situation they find out they were never in control to begin with.
