Three unregistered dogs have been put down after they attacked and killed a Queensland mother who was minding them.
Tributes are flowing for 41-year-old Amanda Carmichael, who was mauled to death in the yard of a Maryborough home on Tuesday morning.
Paramedics fought to revive her but she was pronounced dead at the Milton Road property where the attack occurred.
She had suffered wounds to her head, chest and arm.
The mixed-breed dogs had already been corralled into a shed by the time authorities arrived.
They were seized by council officers and were later put down after the owner formally surrendered them.
Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour has offered his condolences to Ms Carmichael's family and friends.
"This is a tragic event that is now subject to a police investigation and until the coronial inquest has been undertaken, we cannot comment on the circumstances surrounding the incident," he said in a statement.
"The dogs were unregistered."
Police have said Ms Carmichael was well known and well liked in the Maryborough community, and her death is being treated as a tragic accident.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
