SAN DIEGO, California — Remedios Romero-Solares was identified as the 30-year-old Fallbrook woman who was attacked and killed by a pack of eight American Bulldogs at a home where she was housesitting at 1305 Calle Tecolotan in Fallbrook, according to news reports. The homeowners were breeders of the animals.

About 5:15 p.m., San Diego County police deputies responded to the home after the victim’s cousin reported the death. The cousin told authorities she visited the home to check on her relative when she found Romero-Solares’ body in the backyard surrounded by the loose Bulldogs.

The Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and confirmed that the woman died from the mauling due to penetrating, blunt-force injuries caused by the dogs biting her all over her body.

“The family of the victim should consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the homeowners who owned and raised these vicious dogs,” said Attorney West Thomas. “Under California law, keepers of dangerous animals are strictly liable for the injuries or death caused by them.”
