A pack of vicious wiener dogs mauled an Oklahoma woman to death, according to reports.
Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant says Tracy Garcia, 52, was attacked and killed by a neighbor's dogs near her home on Banyon Road outside Ardmore Thursday night.
One of the animals charged deputies responding to the incident and was shot and killed. The other six dogs were taken to a local veterinary hospital where they were euthanized at the owner's request. Six of the dogs are believed to be standard dachshund and terrier mixes, and one of the dogs was a standard dachshund border collie mix. Dinwiddie said it was apparent that the dogs have been living in the woods. "This is just a bad deal all the way around". Reports indicated that the dogs' bodies were then sent to Ardmore Animal Shelter for cremation. However, KXII reported that vet hospital officials have decided that the dogs won't be tested.
The dogs, whose legs were shorter than a human hand, ranged in age from one to three years old, with three females and four males.

The dogs were covered in ticks and fleas, but didnt have any other visible health concerns, according to KXII. "They have really noticeable characteristics like their knobby legs, knees, very short legged dogs and their coats".
"We were cleaning ticks off ourselves all day", Dinwiddie told KXII.
Police are investigating what triggered the deadly attack and if there will be any charges filed against the dogs' owner, who has not been identified.
