A pack of wild small dogs believed to be standard dachshund and terrier mix dogs mauled to death an Oklahoma woman.
The victim, identified as Tracy Garcia, 52, was killed last week near Ardmore by seven of her neighbor’s dogs, which all weighed less than 40 pounds. “This is a bad situation, a very unfortunate situation,” Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant told KTEN. It’s unclear what led to the attack, but the owner reportedly requested that animal rescue officials euthanize the animals.
At least one of the dogs was killed when authorities responded to the initial attack. The district attorney will decide whether any charges will be filed against the owner.
Garcia was laid to rest on Tuesday, leaves behind a son and a daughter.
