GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) – Cherokee County Sheriff Steve Mueller confirmed his deputies are investigating a dog attack that occurred on Crenshaw Road Wednesday.
FOX Carolina's Jennifer Phillips spoke to the dogs' owner, Tonya Cook Wilson.
Wilson said her three dogs tried to protect her after a neighbor shot at them and then attacked Wilson.
Deputies said they believe a male fired shots at the dog and then came onto Wilson's property along with another woman.
Wilson said it all happened right after she pulled up into her yard Wednesday morning.
Deputies said the dogs bit both the man and the woman. Both were taken to the hospital for their injuries. One reportedly had to have surgery.
Investigators said the neighbors have had an ongoing dispute for a while.
Deputies charged Wilson for not having a rabies collar. They said the investigation is ongoing, and the other neighbor could also face charges.
