News outlet KTEN reported 52-year-old Tracy Garcia was standing outside her Carter County, Okla., home last Thursday when she was mauled by her neighbour's seven dogs.

Bryant says the dogs each weighed less than 40 pounds (18 kilograms) and that they belonged to one of Garcia's neighbors.

When first responders arrived on the scene, at least one of the dachshunds turned on them, too, even charging toward the rescuers.

The sheriff says the remaining dogs were euthanized at the owner's request.

"From what it appeared, about seven dogs had attacked her", said Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant.

They were all described as dachshund-terrier or dachshund-border collie mixes.

However, capital expenditures (capex) rose by only 2% year/year (y/y), and were down by about 42% from 2014 levels. This domestic production increase will have a significant moderating influence on future oil prices.

"If there was any possible issue of them biting someone else, then it would've been (done), but the dogs are deceased as well as the victim, so there's just no reason to go and spend thousands and thousands of dollars", Dinwiddie, the euthanasia technician, said, according to KXII.

The rest of the pets, which were predominantly a standard dachshund breed, were taken to Ardmore Animal Shelter where they were later euthanised, KTEN reported.

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

The dogs were young, and all ranged in age from about a year to three years, according to Dinwiddie. "This is just a bad deal all the way around".

Police have not arrested anyone yet but continue to investigate.

Garcia died at a hospital later that day from her injuries.
