Brakpan - Two dogs savaged a domestic worker to death at a house in Brakpan on the East Rand on Monday morning, according to Gauteng police.

Superintendent Andy Pieke said the two pit bulls attacked the woman in the back garden of her employer's house about 08:40.

The woman, whose details were still being sought, had been working at the house about four months. She was living in a backyard room at the house, said Pieke.

He said a member of the public shot the two dogs dead at the request of the owners. Police have opened an inquest docket to determine whether someone should be held responsible for the attack.
