Beverly Hills Cop actress, Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst had to be rushed to the hospital after she was mauled by her pitbulls.
The 52-year-old’s arm was left severely injured after her pit bulls; Buddha, eight, and seven-month-old Baby turned on one another in her West Hollywood home on Friday.
Speaking with TMZ, his fiance, Mark Nason told said that Heather was petting their 7-month-old puppy when their other pit bull “suddenly appeared to get jealous and growled.” The dogs then lunged at each and that’s when the TV star’s right hand and arm got caught in the middle of the violent attack.
According to her partner, Heather was “rushed to the hospital to treat gruesome injuries, including crushed bones in her hand, torn ligaments and other deep cuts throughout her arm.”
Heather was forced to undergo surgery on her arm, where surgeons inserted pins to miminize the damage done and now remains in hospital. She also faces nearly a year of physiotherapy to recover from the trauma.
The San Franciso native who starred in 1994’s Beverly Hills Cop III also featured in NYPD Blue, 2000’s Charlie’s Angels and Married With Children.
Despite the terrifying incident, Heather’s partner Mark has insisted that they have “every intention” to keep their dogs as they’re “huge pit bull advocates.”
