The animals, believed to number 12 to 13, had been left to guard a flock of unattended sheep in the nearby Montefiorino pine forest.

At the same time, Cavallaro had been enjoying a picnic in the woods with her boyfriend.

The pair were attacked by the pack of stray dogs as they drove through the densely forested area.

Cavallaro’s friend eventually escaped, but she was mauled by the dogs, who reportedly attacked every part of her body.

The friend, who managed to hide from the pack of dogs in an abandoned shack, alerted the local authorities with a phone call.

Rescue workers arrived at the scene and took the 20-year-old, who was initially alive despite her horrific injuries to all parts of her body, to a local hospital.

However, Simona died shortly after arriving for emergency treatment.

Eight months after the attack, local shepherd Pietro Rossomanno was arrested for involuntary manslaughter after allegedly abandoning his flock.

According to Corriere De La Calabria, the 45-year-old was at a nearby bar when the fatal attack took place.

Prosecutors say Rossomanno allowed his dogs to babysit his flock and could have stopped them when they became aggressive towards the young woman.

Prosecutors allege his conduct was negligent – a total lack of care for the basic rules laid down to regulate livestock farming.

Rossomanno remains under house arrest while the investigation continues.
