Mom Mauled to Death by 13 Dogs in Vicious Attack

A devastating dog attack in Quitman, Georgia, resulted in the tragic death of a mother and severe injuries to her son. The incident, which took place on May 9 around 4:45 p.m., prompted a response from deputies of the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office, following reports of a dog attack.

Upon arrival, deputies were met with a number of aggressive dogs and discovered that several minors had been transported to the hospital. Courtney Williams, a 35-year-old mother, was found deceased in a nearby yard, believed to have been mauled by the pack of 13 dogs. Her son, Kayden, also sustained serious injuries during the attack.

In the aftermath of this tragedy, Joshua Cox, Williams’ husband, started a GoFundMe campaign to help the family navigate the challenges ahead. Cox shared that Kayden had bravely pushed his sister out of the path of the dogs but was unable to escape their aggression himself, resulting in his hospitalization.

Crystal Cox, the aunt of the children, revealed on social media that a brave passerby, alerted by Kayden’s brother, Nathan, managed to fend off the dogs and transport the injured children to the hospital.

Fortunately, Kayden has since been discharged from the hospital, while the other children, though physically unharmed, are understandably traumatized by the incident.

Following the attack, 11 of the dogs involved were taken into custody by the Thomasville Humane Society, as reported by local news outlet WALB. However, it remains uncertain whether the dogs shared the same owner or if the owner will face legal repercussions.

Williams’ funeral took place on Saturday, but the investigation into the incident continues. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is encouraging anyone with information to reach out to their Thomasville Investigative Office. Anonymous tips can also be submitted through the GBI’s online platform or by calling their tip line.
