Mother, Kirstie Jane Bennard, and her two children, Lilly Jane and Hollace Dean attacked by two pitbulls near Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park in Shelby County, Tennessee.

The horror discovery was made on Wednesday at a home near Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park in Shelby County, Tennessee. (Read More Here).

The children's mother, Kirstie Jane Bennard, 30, who was also attacked in the horrifying encounter, is hospitalized in critical condition.

According to the Daily Mail, Kirstie spent "over 10 minutes" trying to save her children from the dogs.

Jeff Gibson, Kirstie's husband, who was unharmed in the incident, told the outlet his wife has an "uncountable about of stitches and bite marks over the entire body, including her face".

He added that his wife's "arms and legs are completely bandaged/wrapped up".

Gibson told the Mail that Kirstie's injuries won't cause any "permanent damage, other than a heart that will never heal".

A family friend told the outlet that the mother-of-two is "hanging in there".

The county's Animal Control took the dogs into custody, and they have since been euthanized.

Their mom, Kirstie Jane Bennard, 30, of Millington, was also injured in the attack while trying to save her son and daughter. She was transported to Regional One Health in 'critical condition' on Wednesday, police said. 

A family friend told DailyMail.com on Thursday that the respiratory therapist is 'hanging in there,' but declined to speak further. 

Bennard's husband of five years, Colby, who manages a Harley-Davidson dealership in Memphis, was unharmed.

Further details of how the tragedy unfolded have yet to emerge. The animals have been taken away by the local animal control department, although it's unclear if they have been destroyed.  

Eight years ago, Colby shared a picture of two pit bulls on Facebook and referred to the animals as 'house lions' while chatting with Kirstie. 

It is unclear if those are the same dogs behind Wednesday's attack.  DailyMail.com has attempted to reach Colby for comment, with his father Michael declining to talk when contacted by phone. 

The attack happened around 3.30pm on Wednesday inside the family's $360,000, five bedroom Sylvan Road home in Millington, Tennessee - near Memphis. 

It is unclear what caused the pit bulls to become aggressive. 

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office confirmed to DailyMail.com on Thursday that the pit bulls are currently in possession of Animal Control.
