Family dogs attack and kill East Valinda woman

A woman was killed when her four dogs attacked her in the backyard of her home in the unincorporated East Valinda area of the San Gabriel Valley, authorities said Wednesday.

The attack occurred about 5 p.m. Tuesday on Elizondo Street, according to Sgt. V. Munshi of the Industry Sheriff’s Station.

The woman, whom the coroner said was in her 20s, was in the yard with her male child, Munshi said. Both were bitten and taken to a hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead. The boy was treated for minor injuries.

Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control officers took custody of the dogs, he said. He did not know the dogs’ breeds.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported the woman forgot her key and no one was inside the home in the 18000 block of Elizondo Street. The woman reportedly suffered major injuries to her head and one arm.
