[Ed. – Man’s best fiend.]
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has identified a man killed in a dog attack as 83-year-old Michael Downing.
Downing was killed by his neighbor’s dogs at about 4 p.m. Friday, officials said.
The hole in the fence where witnesses said the dogs came through is now boarded up.
Witnesses Mackenzie Partin and Eddie Edwards said Downing’s body may have been dragged into the dog’s yard because they saw his body on the other side of the fence.
“By far it’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Partin. “There was only 30 percent left of his body probably.”
Partin said Downing was dismembered and barely recognizable.
