Prague - A 60-year-old woman was mauled to death on Friday by up to 25 Rottweilers she was keeping on her property in Radonice-nad-Ohri, a village some 65km north of the Czech capital Prague, police confirmed.

"Several dogs attacked their owner at about 06:00. She died immediately after suffering serious wounds," police spokesperson Daniel Vitek told AFP.

"An investigation was launched to confirm all the circumstances of the incident," Vitek added.

After being called to the scene by the woman's daughter, police removed 25 dogs from the property, but were not immediately able to confirm whether the woman was involved in breeding the canines for dog-fighting.

The dogs were "abused and starving", according to TV Nova, a local Czech broadcaster.
