While her grandmother slept inside, an 18-month-old George girl was mauled to death in her yard by a pack mixed-breed of dogs owned by the child's family.

The attack occurred Wednesday at about 6:30 p.m., according to Bryan County Sheriff Clyde Smith, the Savannah Morning News reported.

The grandmother awoke after she heard the commotion in her yard and then watched from a window as the dogs attacked her granddaughter. She was unable to reach the little girl in time to help, The Associated Press reported.

The dogs were euthanized by Bryan County Animal Control.

In August 2009, a former college professor and his wife were attacked and killed by nearly a dozen dogs along a rural northeast Georgia road. Their bodies were found mutilated, USA Today reported.

Authorities later rounded up 11 dogs that were seen in the area when the attack took place.

On Tuesday, dogs killed a teen girl in her home in Britain.

Jade Anderson, 14, was found by police inside her northwest England home after a pack of "aggressive" and "out-of-control" dogs ran about her house, CNN reported.

Police killed four of the dogs at the scene.

A UK newspaper speculated that the dogs included an American bulldog, two Staffordshire bull terriers and a bull mastiff. All of the breeds are legal to own in Britain.
