ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma woman is dead after authorities say she was attacked by seven dogs.

Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant says deputies were dispatched Thursday night to an area just east of Ardmore. Bryant says medical personnel were already on-scene treating the woman, but she later died at a hospital.

Bryant says the woman lived in the area, but he did not immediately release her name.

It's unclear what led to the attack.

The sheriff says the dogs have been euthanized at the owner's request.

No arrest has been made. The investigation is ongoing.

Ardmore is about 100 miles (161 kilometers) south of Oklahoma City.
