A Florida woman was found after police say she was mauled to death by her own dog on the back porch of her home (audio below).

Amber Fletcher, of Leesburg, Florida, called 911 after finding her mother-in-law, identified as Sonya Tyson, 66, lying on her back porch, covered in blood on April 1.

In audio of the 911 call, Fletcher can be heard telling the operator that bites from the dog were so deep that "you can actually see the bones in her arms."

According to WOFL, an emergency crew had to shoot and kill the dog when it arrived at Tyson's home.

Police are working to determine what may have caused the pit bull mix to turn against its owner.
