Daughter’s dog pack given blame for mother’s death
A WOMAN aged 71 has died after she is believed to have been mauled by a pack of dogs that she had gone to feed.
Police were called to a house in Morden, south London, at around 6.25pm on Tuesday where she was found dead with multiple injuries.
Officers have taken away five dogs from the property in Rutland, including two Bordeaux bulldogs, two American bulldogs and a mongrel.
None of the animals are banned breeds, according to Scotland Yard, and no arrests have been made.
A spokeswoman said: “She had sustained a number of injuries. An investigation is under way to establish a cause of death.”
A post-mortem examination will be carried out today at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London.
According to reports, the woman had gone to feed pet dogs belonging to her daughter.
Two adjoining semi-detached houses – No 7 and No 9 Rutland Drive – have been cordoned off by police.
Friends and family of the woman had gathered inside No 9, but declined to speak to reporters, while a Metropolitan Police officer stood guard at the entrance to No 7.
