Florida Man Found Dead With 100 Dog Bites
A Florida man was found dead after taking a short cut home. He was found with over 100 dog bites on his body.
According to CNN, Melvin Olds Jr., 45, was found on Thursday near Lake Placid. The county’s animal services have set up traps to capture the dogs that may have been responsible for the brutal attack.
As of now, six dogs have been caught in relation to the incident.
“That alone is not enough to say that they were the animals involved,” the Sheriff’s office said. They will be examining the dog’s DNA to the wounds on Melvin’s body.
“While we may have the dogs that were responsible for this horrible tragedy, we won’t know for sure for a while,” Sheriff Paul Blackman said.
It is not clear what breed of dogs were captured, or what could have motivated such a rare attack.
“I want to encourage residents of Highway Park and the surrounding area to be on the lookout for any loose dogs, especially those that seem aggressive,” he said. “We don’t want anyone else to be injured.”
