Carter County officials identify dog attack victim

Woman attacked and killed by pack of dogs identified

Authorities are investigating whether criminal charges should be filed after an Oklahoma woman was mauled to death by seven small dogs, a lot of them possibly a dachshund-terrier mix.

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

"From what it appeared, about seven dogs had attacked her", said Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant. The other is believed to be a border collie mix, according to KXII in Oklahoma.

'Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims. Shelter co-director Tena Layton told The Daily Ardmorette that the oldest dog was possibly the pack's mother.


She added that because of the costs involved, coupled with the circumstances, none of the dogs would be tested for rabies. "This is just a bad deal all the way around".

Dinwiddie says the dogs were infested with fleas and ticks but didn't have any other visible health concerns.

The dogs were all dachshund mixes, according to Ardmore Animal Shelter's euthanasia technician Amanda Dinwiddie.

"We were cleaning ticks off ourselves all day", Dinwiddie said. "They have really noticeable characteristics like their knobby legs, knees, very short legged dogs and their coats". She later died at the hospital.

The attack is still under investigation, according to KTEN.
