A pregnant woman was killed by several dogs in a forest in northern France, investigators say, Sky News reports.
Elisa Pilarski, 29, was walking one of her own dogs when she was bitten to death in the Forest of Retz, south of the Aisne, on Saturday.
Dozens of dogs were taking part in a hunt near to where she died at the time, French daily newspaper Le Parisien reports.
Ms Pilarski phoned her husband when she felt threatened by a pack of dogs she had encountered in the forest, and reportedly said: “I’m scared, come quickly. There are plenty of dogs barking around.”
Her husband Christophe reportedly left work and arrived at the scene an hour later.
He found Ms Pilarski in the forest after hearing the screams of their own dog who was curled up against her body, French news site L’Union reports.
She was said to have been found on the edge of the woods not far from where she lives.
