A woman killed last year by a dog was attempting to feed it when it mauled her, according to a coroner's report.
Kathleen Green died on Jan 30, 2016, following an attack on the Tk'emlups Indian Band reserve by what was described as a mixed-breed dog.
The coroner's report released this week said Mounties found Green dead in her backyard.
"Ms. Green was caring for a family member's dog that was chained to the mobile home . . . It appeared that Ms. Green was feeding the dog when the attack occurred," the report states. "Due to limited mobility, she was not typically the person who fed the dog."
Coroner Susan Barth said Green had cared for the dog for a few months. While no previous attacks were reported, Barth said "the dog did have a history of exhibiting aggressive behaviour.
"It was known to snarl and growl at people and had attacked a horse on a previous occasion."
Mounties who arrived to the scene shot and killed the dog in order to allow paramedics to reach Green.
Barth classified the death as accidental and made no recommendations. RELATED http://www.kamloopsthisweek.com/woman-mauled-to-death-in-house-on-tkemlups-indian-band-reserve/
