"She was walking along as she came across several dogs that were actually with their owners and the dogs proceeded to attack her. Apparently she fell to the ground and she sustained quite serious injuries" said RCMP Cpl. Monica Schimanke.
The woman was later flown by air ambulance from Fort Liard to a hospital in Edmonton. She is expected to return home later this week.
The RCMP plans to meet with the community's chief to talk about dog safety. The community currently has no dog by-laws.
The RCMP said charges could still be laid.
