Man Killed by 4 Dogs While Doing Work at California Home

A man doing work on a property in Southern California on Tuesday was mauled to death by four massive dogs while their owner was away, officials said.

Riverside County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the home in Jurupa Valley around 7:30 a.m. after someone called 911 reporting hearing screaming, the Riverside County Department of Animals Services said.

The victim, who has not been named, had sustained fatal injuries after being attacked by four large-breed dogs — three Belgian Malinois and one Cane Corso.

He was reportedly at the house to do some work for the owner. According to officials, the man had worked at that location previously without incident.

Animal Services stated that the property is a residential home that is being converted into a business.

The owner was not present during the deadly attack. When he arrived, he surrendered his four dogs “for humane euthanasia.”

Riverside County Animal Services director Erin Gettis called the mauling a horrific reminder for dog owners to be vigilant in keeping communities, dogs and people safe.

“This is a tragedy and our thoughts go out to this gentleman’s family and loved ones,” Gettis stated in the release.
