A young girl is dead after being mauled by two dogs near Thompson, Man., RCMP said Wednesday.

Thompson RCMP responded to a call in Lac Brochet around 6 p.m. Tuesday and found a 10-year-old girl seriously injured after being attacked by two dogs of unknown breed.

RCMP say the dogs have been destroyed by community members. The dogs did belong to someone in the community, but were not known to the girl, RCMP said.

An autopsy will take place in Winnipeg and RCMP is continuing with the investigation.
