Oklahoma woman dies after mauling from pack of dachshund mixes

Three of the dogs were females and four were males, Dinwiddie explained, while none of them weighed more than 40 pounds and none stood taller than knee-height.

The Carter County Sheriff said Tracy Garcia, 52, was mauled by seven of her neighbor's dogs Thursday evening near the intersection of Banyon and Mary Niblack roads, just east of Ardmore.

When cops arrived at the grisly scene, they say they were forced to shoot one of the animals dead after it charged at them, KXII reports. The AP reports it's not clear what led to the attack.

Six dogs in the group belonged to the breed of dachshunds, one was a mixture of Terrier.

The dogs had no visible health problems, other than a flea and tick infestation.
