Florida authorities are investigating after they said a man was mauled to death by stray dogs.
Melvin Olds, 45, died on July 4 in Lake Placid after being bitten by dogs more than 100 times, the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office said. “The on-scene investigation determined his death was caused by an animal attack,” the department said.
The bite wounds may have been caused by six pit bull mixes captured by deputies in the area after the attack, WFLA-TV reported. Authorities won’t know for sure until DNA tests are conducted.
