An Amazon worker has been found dead in a yard after a suspected mauling by two dogs.
The body of the Amazon worker was found in a yard on a property in the Wood Heights area of Excelsior Springs, Missouri — approximately 32 miles northeast of Kansas City — on Monday evening, according to ABC News’ Kansas City affiliate KMBC.
Neighbors told KMBC that they called the Ray County Sheriff’s Office to report a delivery truck which had been parked in front of a residence in Wood Heights for several hours on Monday evening.
But when authorities responded to investigate the truck, they found the body of the driver in the yard along with two dogs on the property, according to KMBC.
The responding deputy shot and killed both of the dogs after an initial investigation revealed that animal bites were a factor in the Amazon worker’s death, according to Ray County Sheriff Scott Childers.
“We’re deeply saddened by tonight’s tragic incident involving a member of our Amazon family and will be providing support to the team and the driver’s loved ones. We are assisting law enforcement in their investigation,“ Amazon said in a statement obtained by ABC News.
The Amazon employee has not yet been identified and it is unclear if the residents of the home were there at the time of the suspected — but currently unconfirmed — mauling or if there had been any history of aggression by the dogs.
The circumstances around the death remains under investigation.

Not all pit bulls are bad. If you raise any dog to be mean it will be.
Typical response. Yes, other breeds are responsible for more BITES than Pit Bulls, but Poodles are very unlikely to kill you when they do bite. Just facts. You might as well be bitten by a hyena with that bite force. There was a story the other day where a family with kids had two Pit Bulls for 7 or 8 years. Never a problem and and they were good family dogs. One day, don’t know the trigger, they snapped. Killed both kids and almost the mother trying to rescue them. Find me the story where a pack of Springer Spaniels were ill-trained and killed the delivery man? I’ll wait. By the way, I love dogs more than most people. Too much of a risk for me.
SEE THAT YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DOGS…..AZ GAL…..TOO BAD….
dogs should never be left alone outside. never, ever
PEOPLE THAT LEAVE THEIR DOGS OUTSIDE ARE NOT DOG LOVERS….THEY JUST WANT THE DOG BUT HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT THE LOVE A DOG GIVES THOSE THAT GIVE IN RETURN…THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE DOGS IN THE FIRST PLACE…..THEY ARE JUST LIKE MY NEIGHBORS THAT SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY.
