A Detroit man is in critical condition after a pack of dogs mauled him on the east side Thursday evening.
Police said the attack was so vicious that the man lost his hands and feet, the Free Press reports.
The man, age 40 to 50, was attacked after at least five pit bulls escaped a house on the 4500 block of Pennsylvania. When police arrived, the man was naked and pinned on his back as the dogs mauled him.
Police shot at the dogs and killed one of them. The rest of the dogs were lured into their home.
Police returned this morning and found about 13 dogs, including puppies. All appeared to be pit bulls, police said.
The mauling remains under investigation, and the owner has been questioned.
The victim is being treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
