All the news you need to know this Wednesday.

A Tennessee teenager has died after being mauled by a pack of dogs. Adrieanna O’shea, 19, was set upon by a mastiff, Rottweiler-Lab, two mastiff-Lab mixes and a pit bull, as she entered a home in South Knox to retrieve her purse on August 23, Knox News reported. A witness told police she ran to the door and saw the dogs viciously attacking O'shea, throwing her in the air and dragging her toward a wooded area. The teen was taken to hospital but died hours later.  "I will never forget your beautiful face, corky sense of humour, and full of so much energy!" her aunt wrote in a heartwarming tribute on Facebook. "Fly high sweetheart, you're at peace now!" All five dogs have been euthanised.
