A mother-of-two has been mauled to death by a pack of seven sausage dogs.
The 52-year-old woman from Oklahoma was reportedly attacked and killed by her neighbour's dogs on May 10.
It is understood that upon arriving at the scene, police were forced to shoot one of the dogs dead after it threatened them.
The six other dogs were taken away, and will be put down. The owner has requested this.
The dogs were either daschund-terrier or daschund-border collie mixes.
None weighed more than 18kg.
“This is a bad situation, a very unfortunate situation,” Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant told KTEN.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims. This is just a bad deal all the way around.”
