Woman attacked and killed by pack of dogs identified

None of the dogs weighed more than 40 pounds or were taller than knee height, KXII said.

Tracy Garcia, 52, was near her home on Thursday, May 7 when a pack of seven dogs attacked her, KXII-TV reports.

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

It's unknown what triggered the dogs to attack Garcia, but an investigation is ongoing Bryant said.

Six of the dogs are believed to have been mixed with a terrier, but one - the biggest and oldest - could be part-border collie. All of the dogs were infested with fleas and ticks, reports say. "They all ranged from probably a year to about three years (old)". They are characterized by short legs and long bodies, often being given the nickname "sausage dogs".


Ardmore Animal Shelter's euthanasia technician Amanda Dinwiddie told local media: "A predominant breed in these dogs is definitely standard dachshund".

A report that one of the pit bulls was inaccurate, according to Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant. "This is just a bad deal all the way around". "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims".

"We were cleaning ticks off ourselves all day", she said.

"They have really noticeable characteristics like their knobby legs, knees, very short legged dogs and their coats".

The sheriff said he hopes to have the autopsy results and other relevant information ready for the district attorney's office by Tuesday morning. She later died at the hospital.
