SUNDRE, Alta. - A woman who was attacked by two dogs has filed a lawsuit against the dogs' owners and a west-central Alberta town.

Deanna Wolfe was mauled by the pit bull-type dogs at a trailer home in Sundre in August.

Wolfe's lawyer Clint Docken says the suit names the dogs' owners Rita Phillip and Christoforos Zergiotis, as well as the Town of Sundre.

The suit alleges the town was negligent because it was aware these dogs were dangerous, but no action was taken.

Wolfe suffered significant injuries to her arms and face and claims she is permanently disfigured.

None of the allegations has been proven in court.

Phillip is facing charges of aggravated assault in the attack and her next court appearance is Wednesday.

One of the dogs was shot dead by police immediately following the attack.

Wolfe was found lying in a pool of blood behind a closed bedroom door and was so badly injured that emergency responders thought she was dead.
