Daughter speaks out about fatal dog attack at Vincentia

Police Sign 19d9a

The daughter of a woman who was killed in a dog attack on the NSW South Coast has spoken about watching her mother being ripped apart by the canines, as she called for fresh witnesses to come forward.

Gloria Holland says the dogs - believed to be bullmastiff crossbreeds - were like "torpedoes" as they savaged her 91-year-old mother before turning on her.

"We've all seen the torpedoes on ships, they were big, round and brown like that," Ms Holland said on Wednesday.

Ms Holland's mother Sally Holland died at the scene of the attack on Collingwood Beach at Vincentia on March 29.

Police say three dogs attacked five people in total, including a 47-year-old man and three women aged 29, 73 and 79 who were taken to hospital suffering lacerations and bite marks.
