A woman has died after being attacked by seven dogs
Officials have said the incident occurred just before 10 p.m on Thursday, May 10th.
The seven dogs are believed to have included one pit bull and six “medium-sized dogs of other breeds”. The dogs have since been put down by their owner.
"Once we were notified that this female had succumbed to her injuries, the owner of the dogs decided to put the dogs down," Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant told KTEN.
The officer went on to warn others to execute caution around animals:
"Just be aware of your surroundings and if you have any issues with livestock or animals or anything like that, please give us a call,” he said.
No arrests have been made at this stage.
