According to Sgt. Michael Woody, the man was attacked late Thursday after the animals had escaped from a house on Pennsylvania Street, between East Warren and Mack avenues.
Woody told WWJ Newsradio 950’s Sandra McNeil that when police were called out to the scene, a dozen dogs were loose.
“When we found the victim he was lying in a yard, completely naked, being attacked by several pit bulls,” said Woody, “and our officers had to try to corral the pit bulls.”
Woody said police fired several shots at the dogs, killing one of them. …
The unnamed 40- to 50-year-old victim lost both his hands and his feet in the attack. Friday afternoon, he remained in critical condition at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
At this time it’s unclear what led to the attack. Woody said police don’t know what the man was doing on the property or why he was unclothed.
