    British tourist mauled to death in Greece by rabid wolves not stray dogs, coroner believesA British woman believed to have died after being mauled by feral dogs in Greece may have been attacked by rabid wolves, a coroner has said. The woman, named locally as Celia Hollingworth, of Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, was reported missing on Thursday. The 62-year-old disappeared while walking back to her accommodation in Maroneia, in the northern part of the country, following a visit to the nearby archaeological site of Mesimvria. Coroner Nikolaos Kifinidis told The Times that the condition of remains found on Saturday suggested she was not attacked by stray dogs.

According to animal welfare campaigners, there are an estimated one million stray dogs in Greece, however wolves are common to the wooded region. Reports suggest that Ms Hollingworth tried to contact her relatives in London after being attacked, but lost signal on her phone.
