Two dogs ‘mauled owner to death’ as corpse found in garden with bite marks

A woman who has been found dead in her garden is believed to have been mauled by her own two dogs.

Tiffany L. Frangione, 48, from Houston, Texas, USA, tried to intervene in a fight between her two dogs and the neighbour’s dogs, but her pets turned against her, leaving her with puncture wounds on her neck, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the medical examiner determined her death to have been accidental and caused by “blunt force trauma of her neck with penetrating injuries and mechanical asphyxia”.

The 48-year-old is believed to have been attacked by her two dogs, a female, three-year-old Alaskan husky mix named Masha and a three-year-old male Cane Corso mix named Rachirius Maximus.

Frangione had owned both dogs since they were puppies, with Masha coming into her life at just three-weeks-old and Rachirius Maximus when he was nine months old.

Houston’s BARC Animal Shelter confirmed to KHOU11.com that those were the dogs involved in the attack and that Frangione's husband had turned them over to the shelter following the attack and that they are scheduled to be euthanised on Monday.

Frangione had posted numerous pictures of her pups on social media and had even created Instagram accounts for both of them.

According to her previous posts, in 2019, Rachirius Maximus and Masha had puppies together, which caused her to feel “truly blessed.”

In a 2018 post, Frangione said Rachirius Maximus was born in Dubai and was previously a guard dog.

The post read: “I came to the United States with my two brothers all the way from Dubai.

“I was brought to silently guard a sheik’s compound but found myself conflicted between the job I was hired to do and my kind and loving nature.

"I chose to leave my past of high-profile bodyguard duties and start my life loving and protecting my new masters.”
