How awful to be killed by your own dogs. Peace to his soul.

Question I beg to ask is how large is the this family's estate to keep that many dogs (9)? Why so many dogs ? what were they protecting with that many dogs?

It sounds a little bit careless unless they were breeders. Indeed the dogs do develop pack mentality - and when that happens they are no longer pets, but a pack of hunting dogs - just as those wild African dogs. Killer instinct kicks in and the rest is history.

Just a lesson to those with many dogs.

OK, this is utterly idiotic. People lose their minds and common sense over dogs. I'll go to a friend's house to visit and their dogs will charge the door ARF! ARF! ARF! ARF! WHAM (as they slam into the door, bulging the aluminum storm outward). My friend will push the door open a crack and slip out with the dogs trying to push by so they can get out and eat me. Is this any way to live? Dogs are vicious animals, not little people. Idiots!!

Just because your "friend" has no clue and hasn't trained their dogs doesn't mean that ALL dogs are vicious animals. They require training, just as a child does, on how to behave. If your friend's dogs behave that way, it's your friend's fault.

You are a completely brainless idiot. He "got what he deserved?" Without even knowing this person, you, in your infinite wisdom, have decreed that he deserved to get mauled to death by dogs because you "hate dog people." Please do everyone a favor and keep your opinions to yourself. Must be hard getting through the day consumed by all your obvious hatred for your fellow man. So however you die someday, if it's a horrible death, it's o.k. for someone else to say you got what you deserved?

I would say that the vast majority of dog owners just let their dogs jump up on people, and they say moronic things like "he's harmless" as he claws your leg with bared teeth. They don't pick up the dog crap either. Nothing says "inconsiderate boob" like some bozo walking the filthy mutt down the street. I think people get dogs because they are unable to form close relationships with people so psychologically they substitute the dog, then live in denial of the dog's nature. I would like to see a requirement that $300,000 of liability insurance be maintained on each dog as a matter of federal law.
Whenever I see dog owners that treat their animals like children I wonder what in the heck is wrong with them. They obviously are lacking friends and a little bit of sanity. It's insulting to those of us that have children.

Some types of breeds do require insurance by law. But that says nothing about common sense which you lack. Don't generalize millions of dog owners based on one story.

I am a dog and a cat person. I have an F3 Savannah that does have insurance on him. He acts just like a dog in almost every way. I also have 2 Australian shepherds who are my kid's world. The difference is that my pets are trained and loved and are inside animals.

There is no way someone having 9 dogs would provide a family environment. There is no way 9 dogs are trained to be around people more than other dogs. I have never agreed with people who have pets that are purely outside animals which I am forced to assume giving the amount of dogs.

I don't walk my dogs but I do walk my Savannah and he is well trained. I have the common sense to not let a cat that dwarfs other cats and chirps like a wild cat roam outside. I have common sense to treat my pets as part of the family and not just a deterrence for criminals. My pets do NOT jump on people when they come in. They sit still. They are simply used to people coming and going. Although, they do charge me once in a while if I call them :)

I, like most dog owners are responsible. I dare you to find any poop in my yard from my dogs. I pick up after them everyday. It part of my routine. My household consists of my 4 kids, their mom, her parents and 3 pets. I have poker nights every other week that exposes my animals to other people. They would not say what you claim.

I just blew away two of your theories right there giving my very close relationships with my family and friends or that we are "substituting" anything and\or that we are not responsible.

Don't be mad because of you bad past experiences which are obvious.

Also...change your name if you are going to post on other threads. What does BP have to so with this story. Go back to the Obama\BP bashing threads and spew your nonsense there.

My previous post was to address that person. This one addresses more to this story.

It is sad that people are unaware or unwilling to acknowledge how dangerous animals can be if not properly trained. I feel for the family that has to go through this.

The main question would be, why? Why did this happen? I am inclined to think that they may have been diseased or had rabies. The story said that they were all mixed breeds which does lead to genetic abnormalities or certain susceptibility to disease. All these could be contributors.

I have never heard of having a large amount of dogs could develop into a pack mentality. I do know that once one or most animals become a man-killer that they will target man. I wonder if there wasn't something more sinister in this... I am just thinking out loud here but what if they had attacked and killed some trespasser in the past. I wonder if there was any history with these animals and the owner.

I am still sad by the human loss of life. There are a lot of unanswered questions that may never come out. What a horrible way to die.

wow that is crazy. I wonder if there is more to the story like abuse, or if the dogs really did just turn on him. I will pray for the family. It is a horrible thing to happen.

That is horrible. My heart goes out to the family.

I to wonder if there was a reason the dogs attacked. However, like the story states, perhaps it was a pack thing.

When did coroners become dog experts? I want to hear from
veteranarians, dog trainers, canine behavioralists - dog experts.
When we require an opinion for cause of a human death do we look for
a canine expert? Of course not.

I have 9 dogs, they range from 2 great danes 5 - 60 pound dogs and 2 tiny chihuahuas. I have took the time to train each one of my dogs and they all live inside my house, they are not outside dogs. My dogs are fixed and UTD on their shots, we walk them and keep control of our animals at all times. One family can own 9 dogs but you have to take the time to train them right. When someone knocks at my door they do not go crazy barking and when some one passes my fence they do not go crazy, most of the time they don't even bark.

I'm no expert, but I think it may have been the hundreds of dog bites that tipped them off to cause of death. Genius
