What about this man that seems to have died trying to stop his brother's pit bulls from attacking or fighting? There were two pit bulls and two smaller dogs inside the house. One of the smaller dogs was alive and in a crate. The second smaller dog was found dead inside the home. The police were called in to do a wellness check by a family member.

Man Dead After Dog Attack in Leesburg (http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/local/081009_leesburg_dog_attack - broken link)

A followup story with the autopsy report. The dead young man lived with other family members. A brother who didn't live there owned the pit bulls. The smaller dog that was found dead was a pug mix.

Quote:
"The autopsy located numerous puncture wounds on his body. One set of marks on the neck area penetrated the skin and hit some arteries that control blood flow and supply to the brain," said Officer Chris Jones, spokesman for the Leesburg Police Department.
Quote:
When Delaney's grandfather returned home, he knew something was wrong. "He saw the two pit bull dogs, family dogs were running at large in the house. It was abnormal and they seemed extremely agitated. He backed off," said Jones.
Quote:
The American Pit Bulls were registered properly and were owned by a brother who did not live at the home. The dogs have been quarantined and authorities say the dogs will not be going back to the neighborhood anytime soon.

Indeed - 2 in 3 homes in the U.S. have dogs.

THIS thread is about law enforcement abuse of power, leading to aggravated animal cruelty.
