A mother from Queensland, Australia has been identified as the woman who was fatally mauled by three cross-breed dogs.
Amanda Carmichael was visiting a home in Maryborough, in Queensland’s Fraser Coast region, about 9am on Tuesday when the pit bull terriers attacked her.
Ms Carmichael, 41, was a beloved mother and well-liked member of her community.
Maryborough Patrol Group Acting Inspector Wade Lee told reporters at the scene Ms Carmichael suffered critical injuries to her neck, chest and arm during the attack. Others were present at the home and called emergency services, but Ms Carmichael died at the scene.
One woman who knew Ms Carmichael described her as a ‘beautiful, darling friend’ who will be ‘missed ever so dearly’. David Kindelan, a friend of Ms Carmichael, told The Chronicle she had endured a ‘troubled few years’ but was always friendly and good company.
