Dog Attack Leads to Man's Death

Los Angeles: Two dogs attacked and mauled a man earlier this morning in West Los Angeles.

On August 3, 2007, shortly after 7:00 AM, West Los Angeles patrol officers received a radio call of a dead body in the 12900 block of San Vicinte Boulevard in Brentwood. When they arrived, a man, approximately 40 years of age, was lying in the front yard. He appeared to have suffered a number of injuries as a result of a dog mauling. Paramedics were called and pronounced the man dead.

Several dogs were on the property, but Animal Regulations personnel took four of the dogs into custody pending further investigation and they are now in quarantine. Three of the dogs are Bull Mastiffs and one is an English Bull Dog.

The man worked as a caretaker at the residence and was employed there for the past two years. He resides on the property and was one of the persons responsible for taking care of the dogs.

The exact cause of death will be determined by the Coroner's Office investigation.

The caretaker's name is being withheld pending notification to his family.

Anyone with information is asked to call West LA Homicide Detectives 310-575-8408. During off-hours or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
