ROSEBUD, S.D. (AP) — Stray dogs are being rounded up on the Rosebud Indian Reservation after an attack that killed a woman.

Authorities say 49-year-old Julie Charging Whirlwind died Saturday after being surrounded by a pack of dogs and mauled.

The Rapid City Journal reports that Tribal Council members on Monday authorized tribal police to work with state wildlife officials to round up stray dogs that are deemed dangerous. The dogs will be impounded or killed.

The death of Charging Whirlwind comes just a few months after the Nov. 18 death of 8-year-old Jayla Rodriguez, who was killed by dogs while she was sledding on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Both reservations are in southwest South Dakota.
