An Oklahoma woman died last week after seven small mixed-breed dogs attacked her, according to the Carter County Sheriff’s Office.

Tracy Garcia, 52, was mauled by her neighbor’s small dogs — each weighing less than 40 pounds, KTEN reported.

Six of the seven dogs were identified as a standard dachshund and terrier mix, and one is believed to be a border collie mix, according to KXII. One of the dogs was shot by first responders, and the rest were euthanized at the request of the owner.

The dogs were covered in ticks and fleas, but didn’t have any other visible health concerns, according to KXII. They won’t be testing the dogs for rabies.

The attack is still under investigation, according to KTEN. The district attorney will review the case to determine if the dogs’ owner will face charges.
