NAUVOO - A 36-year-old woman was killed after being attacked by a pack of dogs on Jagger Road in Nauvoo on Monday.

Ruthie Mae Brown  of Boldo was pronounced dead at the scene at 3 p.m. by Walker County Coroner Joey Vick.
 
Vick said her body has been sent to forensics for an official cause of death but confirmed that there was severe trauma caused by an attack by dogs.
 
Walker County Sheriff Nick Smith said an owner has claimed two of the dogs involved. Those dogs have been captured and will be turned over to the Walker County Humane Society, Smith said.
 
Officers were attempting to capture at least three other dogs Monday afternoon. Smith said those dogs are also thought to have owners and are not believed to be strays. The incident is under investigation.
 
Evidence collected will be turned over to District Attorney Bill Adair to determine if there will be charges.
