Deputies in Ray County, Missouri, shot and killed two aggressive dogs after the man’s body was found. “His wounds were consistent with an animal attack”, the sheriff said, and it’s possible that the dog bite killed the Amazon driver.
According to NBC News, A delivery driver for Amazon was found dead after an apparent animal attack Monday in Missouri, and deputies shot and killed two aggressive dogs, the Ray County sheriff said.
Deputies were called to a home in Excelsior Springs around 7 p.m. after neighbors reported that an Amazon van had been parked there for several hours, Sheriff Scott Childers said.
A man’s body was found in a yard, as were two highly aggressive dogs, he said. Deputies shot and killed the animals, and it’s very possible that the dog bite killed the Amazon driver.
The man’s identity was not immediately disclosed.
The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, Childers said, but the victim’s injuries were consistent with being attacked by an animal.
His family was being notified Monday night, the sheriff said.
The owners of the residence were not home, and it appears they are out of town, Childers said.
We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim involved in this incident during this very difficult time.
When individuals are harmed or killed in Animal attack incidents, a dog owner has an obligation to restrain his or her animal for public safety. As long as you are on private or public property legally, the dog owner may be held responsible. Skilled legal representation from a dog bite attorney is typically a must in these situations.
