A mum was savagely killed by a pack of dogs in her friend’s back garden, which left her with horrific injuries to her head, chest and arm.

Amanda Carmichael, 41, died at the property in the city of Maryborough, Queensland, Australia, on Tuesday morning, June 8.

The victim was reportedly looking after the animals, thought to be bull pit bull terrier mixes, before the attack unfolded, according to 7News.

Several other people were at the house and raised the alarm.

Paramedics found Ms Carmichael with critical wounds and attempted CPR, but their attempts were in vain.

One woman who knew the victim said she was a “beautiful, darling friend” who will be “missed ever so dearly”.

Flowers have since been laid at the property where Ms Carmichael died.

Fraser Coast Regional Council mayor George Seymour said: “This is a very sad and tragic event for our community.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and relations.”

Acting Inspector Wade Lee added: "The dogs were in an enclosed yard.
