A Queensland woman was mauled by a pack of dogs and died on Tuesday. She was remembered as a loving mother and friend.

Amanda Carmichael, 41, died of her injuries at a property in Maryborough at 9 a.m. after being attacked by three mixed-breed dogs.

Ms Carmichael had gone to see a friend who was not present at the time of her death.

Kay Paul, Ms Carmichael's aunt, told the Fraser Coast Chronicle that she was a lovely person despite some problematic years.

"She was always laughing and cracking jokes, she was lovely like that," she said.

Ms. Carmichael had lived on the streets for most of her adult life, couch surfing at friends' houses when she could.

Her aunt classified her as a missing person in 2019 after the two lost communication, news.com.au said

Ms. Carmichael, on the other hand, had recently returned to Queensland and was living with her grandmother in Toowoomba when she decided to pay a visit to a friend in Maryborough.

Acting Inspector Wade Lee of the Maryborough Patrol Group told ABC News and other reporters outside the residence on Tuesday that woman had major injuries to her neck, chest, and arm.

People in the house tried to help, and emergency personnel arrived, but they could not save her.

The dogs, which were mostly pitbulls but were mixed breeds, were exterminated by the council yesterday.

According to Insp. Lee, there was no evidence of wrongdoing, and the attack appeared to be a "tragic accident."

Ms. Carmichael was well-known and liked in Maryborough, he added.

The three dogs, who did not belong to Ms. Carmichael, allegedly attacked her on the street outside her suburban home.

Animal control authorities seized the mixed-breed canines from the property, according to Insp Lee.

Before the cops arrived, locals had managed to herd the dogs into a shed.

"The dogs were in an enclosed yard," Inspector Lee said.

"At this stage it is just a very tragic accident. Initial enquiries reveal there is no criminality involved."

Acting Inspector Lee said the dogs were not believed to have been deemed dangerous in the past, and the attack's cause was unknown.

He said the council has seized the dogs and their fate was yet to be determined.

SACRAMENTO, CA - FEBRUARY 1: Tobi, an American Staffordshire Terrier, looks on at the Sacramento SPCA February 1, 2008 in Sacramento, California. Tobi is one of many dogs and cats who were either abandoned or surrendered to many SPCA and county shelters nationwide by their owners because they have gone through home foreclosures and had to move. In December 2007 the amount of pets being dropped off whose owners listed moving as a reason more than doubled from that of a year ago, according the Sacramento SPCA records.
