A pregnant woman was mauled to death by a pack of dogs while walking her own dog in the woods, according to multiple reports.
On Saturday afternoon, 29-year-old Elisa Pilarski was walking her dog on a trail in Saint-Pierre-Aigle’s Forest of Retz, about 50 miles northeast of Paris, when she called her husband at work, according to French news outlets, FranceInfo, L’Union and La Rép des Pyrénées.
Pilarski — who was six months pregnant — told him she felt unsafe because of a nearby pack of threatening dogs.
Worried, Pilarski’s husband left his job and went to help his wife. When he arrived at the forest, he followed the cries of the family’s dog and found the dog injured and curled up beside his wife’s body, which was covered in bites, L’Union reports.
The couple lived near the forest. After finding her body, Pilarski’s husband reportedly went to a neighbor’s home and told her, “My wife was killed by dogs,” prompting her to call for help.
