Woman attacked and killed by pack of dogs identified

A mum-of-two has been mauled to death by a pack of seven tiny sausage dogs, according to reports.

KXII reported that Tracy Garcia, 52, has been identified as the woman who died in Thursday's attack.

Emergency crews were called to the scene, and one of the dogs charged at them; deputies fatally shot that dog. The owner has requested this.

Six appeared to be mixed with an unidentified breed of terrier, and the largest could have been a border collie cross, but all the animals weighed less than 40lb and none were taller than knee-height.

"This is a bad situation, a very unfortunate situation", Bryant told NBC affiliated KTEN.

'Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims. "This is just a bad deal all the way around".

It is unclear at this time what led to the attack, and it is still under investigation. Six of them were about a year old while a seventh - likely the mother - was three-years-old.
