A 20-year-old student has died of horrific injuries after being mauled by a pack of stray dogs.
Simona Cavallaro and her boyfriend had just finished a picnic with a group of friends in Satriano, Italy, when they decided to go for a stroll through the woods, local news sites Agi reported.
However, the couple were attacked as they passed through a densely wooded area and Miss Cavallaro’s boyfriend escaped while she was mauled by the dogs.
Her boyfriend, who hasn’t been named, managed to hide from the pack of dogs in an abandoned shack before alerting the local authorities with a phone call, according to The Sun.
By the time emergency services arrived at the scene, Miss Cavallaro had injuries on every part of her body. She was taken to a nearby hospital but she died shortly after arriving due to the horrific injuries which covered all parts of her body.
Local authorities are in the process of rounding up the pack of dogs and an investigation into the student’s death has begun.
