Woman mauled to death by own Rottweilers
A 53-year-old woman died after she was mauled by her five Rottweiler dogs in Lamphun province, police said yesterday.
The severely mauled body of Nannapas Surinsombat was found in her house in Lamphun's Pa Sang district on Tuesday. One of her ears was severed and her scalp was badly torn, said Pol Maj Karn Deemongkol.
Initially, police detained three Burmese workers the dead woman employed as servants.
An autopsy at Maharaj hospital in Chiang Mai concluded she died of injuries from dog bites, most probably from the five
Rottweilers she raised, Pol Maj Karn said.
Pol Maj Karn said it appeared Nannapas had been attacked by one of her dogs and the smell of blood from the wounds might have aroused aggressiveness in the other dogs.
Following the autopsy, police decided not to press murder charges against the Burmese workers. However, the three still face charges of illegal entry and the use of false identity cards.
