Seven Dachshund type small dogs mauled an Ardmore, Oklahoma woman to death while she was outside of her home late last week. All of the dogs have since been captured by the Ardmore police department’s animal control officer where they were taken to the Westwood Veterinary Hospital and euthanized.
Tracy Garcia, 52, was mauled by the dogs on Thursday evening near the intersection of Banyon and Mary Niblack roads. She later died as a result of her injuries.
The oldest dog was aged at about three years old and like the other dogs had been reported to be a mix of Dachshund and terrier. According to KtenNews, none of the dogs had legs longer than an adult’s hand and all weighed under 40 pounds. All of the dogs had been heavily infested with fleas and ticks. It is unknown at this time if the dogs suffered from any diseases or injuries.
One of the dogs was killed by police; the others were later euthanized at the request of their owner.
A necropsy of the dogs has been ordered. An investigation continues. It is not known if the owner of the dogs will face charges at this time.
Rest in peace Tracey Garcia.
Rest in peace little dogs. What happened?
