MEXICO CITY—Authorities have confirmed that four people whose mutilated bodies were found in a hilly park on the eastern edge of Mexico City over the past two weeks were killed by wild dogs.

Mexico City prosecutors said in a statement that experts determined that a woman and a 1-year-old child found in the Cerro de la Estrella park in Iztapalapa on December 29 had bled to death.

Prosecutors said Monday the bodies had been partially eaten and that the woman was missing her left arm.

Visitors to the same park on Friday found the bodies of two teenagers who had been attacked by dogs and bled to death.

Prosecutors say at least 100 police officers are searching the area and have trapped 25 dogs. Authorities have warned against visiting the park.
