LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Officials with Calcasieu Parish Animal Control confirm that the three dogs involved in the January 10 incident that left a woman hospitalized have been euthanized.

Calcasieu Parish Animal Services Director Nathan Areno says all three dogs were euthanized earlier this week at the request of the dogs' owner.

The woman, who investigators believe was attacked by the dogs, was found lying inside of the fence of a business on Main St. on January 10. Deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office jumped over the fence to attend to the woman.

Deputies say they were threatened by the dogs, causing one of the deputies to fire at them, grazing one of the dogs. At that time, all three dogs ran into the business.

Authorities say the woman was originally taken to a Lake Charles hospital, then airlifted to Houston.
