Pack of stray dogs maul woman to death in her own driveway: Police

A California woman is dead and police say that a pack of stray dogs are likely the suspects.

KOVR reports that police stated a pack of stray dogs attacked Deborah Onsurez, 56, while she was in the driveway of her Stanislaus County home, off of the 500 block of Crows Landing Road on Thursday morning. She was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

“Stray dogs everywhere, that’s Stanislaus County for you, that’s all that’s around here,” said Armando, a man who lives in the area.  “A bunch of mutts really, not no full-breed dog — especially little dogs transients like to keep,” he added.

Attorney Tai Bogan added that it’s rare for someone to get killed by a pack of dogs, although being attacked by a dog or dogs isn’t uncommon. Bogan now questions whether stray dogs or dogs with owners killed Onsurez, especially after police couldn’t find any of the animals in the area afterward. The lawyer now wants authorities to stand up and do something about the situation.

“Animal control cannot allow dogs to roam around the street. It just can’t happen in a civilized society.”

If the dogs responsible for the attacks aren’t strays and belong to people, the owners could face criminal charges.
