WEST RICHLAND, WA – A West Richland woman is distraught after she says a group of roaming dogs attacked and killed her cat.

The Orman's actually think the dogs could be from around their neighborhood. They say they saw collars on most of them.

Three year-old Angel the cat was in the yard Thursday morning like she is every day, but she could not survive the group of dogs roaming onto her yard out for blood. The attack happened just off of West Van Giesen Street on South 40th Avenue. When the Orman's came out after noticing something was wrong through the window, they were too late.

Loretta Orman had been researching the breeds of dogs she thinks they watched run off from their yard.

"We were looking out the window and my husband saw her lying there and she didn't look right. He said something's wrong. All of a sudden I jumped up too and we saw a dog going back to her on the ground. We ran out there and the dogs ran away. She was gone," she explained.

As sad as they are, the Orman's think this could all have been avoided if others were more accountable for their animals. When we spoke with officers Friday they explained that in the city of West Richland if your dog is off your property it needs to be on a leash.
