CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police are investigating the death of a 56-year-old man who was apparently fatally mauled by his daughter’s pit bulls.
The daughter told authorities she came home Sunday night and found her father, Johnny Wilson, lying on the living room floor, covered in blood. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said Wilson suffered numerous bite wounds on various parts of his body.
The daughter turned over four adult pit bulls and two puppies to Chicago Animal Care and Control, where the dogs were being evaluated.
Neighbors said there was no sign of dog fighting at the residence, and that Wilson had never seemed to have any problem with the dogs in the past.
No charges had been filed as of Monday morning.
