ROSIE, Iowa (AP) — A northwestern Iowa woman found in a ditch has died after being attacked by five Great Danes, officials said Wednesday.
A man spotted a woman in a rural area of Clay County on Monday, but was unable to approach her because of multiple large dogs, according to KTIV-TV.
According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the man reported his discovery and the sheriff ruled the woman dead. She has been identified as Mindy Kiepe, 43, of Rossi.
The state coroner said Wednesday that Kiepe died from multiple dog bites. An investigation found that a Kiepe Great Dane was responsible for her death.
Kiepe lived on a farm near where her body was found.
The dog was euthanized, according to the Sheriff's Office.
