A California man opened his front door to find a nightmare waiting: His pregnant wife fatally mauled by a family pit bull still snarling over her blood-spattered body.
Darla Napora, 32, was discovered Thursday afternoon at her home in Pacifica, Calif., authorities said. Her horrified husband Greg called police after wrangling the killer canine into the backyard.
"He was in the driveway, all frantic, yelling," neighbor Kathy Karlson told the San Francisco Examiner. "He had blood on his hands, blood on his shirt and blood down his pants."
A "Beware Of The Dog" sign hung from a fence surrounding the couple's small, white home.
After police arrived at the house, the 2-year-old pit bull bolted from the yard - and cops took the dog down with three gunshots, said Pacifica police spokesman Capt. Dave Bertini.
Attempts to save Darla Napora were unsuccessful, and the 6-months-pregnant woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The family owned a second pit bull, and the animal was turned over to the Peninsula Humane Society.
Napora was a saleswoman for a California wine brokerage, and married Greg about two years ago.
Police said they didn't believe the second dog was involved in the deadly attack.
Carlson said she was stunned by the brutal killing.
"They are not barking dogs," she said of the Naporas' pit bulls. "They seemed friendly ... It's really sad."
