According to the Los Angeles Times, 80-year-old Soon Han was found deceased on the side of the road Friday morning at around 11 a.m., after taking her own dogs for a walk. Police said that the hunting dogs were Dogo Argentinos. They have since been captured and taken to the San Bernardino County Animal Care & Control.

A report by the San Bernardino County coroner indicated that Han had numerous injuries so severe that she died at the scene.
