BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - New information on the horrific dog attack Tuesday. Animal control officers caught another one of the five dogs Wednesday. But two are still on the loose.

73-year-old Joanne Johns told us she often walks on Johnny Skipper Road. That's what she was doing Tuesday morning when a pack of dogs attacked her.

Johns underwent seven hours of surgery at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Wednesday she was in cardiac intensive care.

She'll have more surgery Thursday.

Doctors think she's going to be okay, though she will need a lot of plastic surgery to repair wounds all over her body.

Sheriff's Deputies say they still don't know who owns the dogs or whether they were strays. Feedback
