The Perry County Coroner said Kristen Potter, 38, went with her young son to a home in Centre Township on March 16.
When first responders arrived, two dogs were so aggressive that they couldn’t reach Potter. Animal control officers had to be called to give the animals tranquilizers. They eventually were put to sleep.
A third Great Dane found at the scene was not involved in the mauling.

Potter was married and a mother of three. Husband Jacob Presley Fickett told the Daily Voice that her middle child died in 2021 when a car struck him. Potter also lost her first husband in 2020.
“She wasn't that unhappy,” Fickett said. He added that the family was preparing to move from Pennsylvania to Florida.
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating, but there was no word Tuesday of any charges being filed.
