Tracie Garcia, 52, was walking near her home in Ardmore, Oklahoma, at 10pm when she was attacked by seven small dogs. She later died at the hospital.
Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant confirmed to Fox 25 Boston that the dogs were all under 40 pounds. His statement, however, differs from that of veterinarian Dr. Douglas Aldridge, who stated the dogs were between 35 and 60 pound.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they shot and killed the dogs who charged them, according to KXII 12. The remaining dogs were later euthanized at their owner's request.
