Pit bull breeder mauled to death by his own dogs in Los Angeles

"Preliminary information suggests that the deceased individual was involved in breeding and selling Pitbulls.”


On Friday, a 35-year-old man was found dead in his backyard in Compton, California, after his pit bulls mauled him while he was attempting to feed them.

Authorities with the Los Angeles County Sheriffs told KTLA 5 that they believe the attack occurred between 7:30 and 8:00 pm on Thursday. The man's body was found after a concerned friend discovered his body inside a dog kennel around 7:00 am Friday.

Michael Gomez with the LASD Homicide Bureau said, "He was feeding the dogs at which point maybe there was an altercation between some of the dogs and [they] ultimately attacked and mauled the victim."

Helicopter footage from KTLA showed authorities climbing along the rooftop of the house along with the neighboring ally trying to corral the dogs as they ran loose and attacked each other.

Animal control said they believed the victim was using five adult pit bulls for breeding purposes. These dogs were taken into care by animal control. "Preliminary information suggests that the deceased individual was involved in breeding and selling Pitbulls,” Animal Control said.

In a statement, Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control director Marcia Mayeda said, "Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family and friends of the victim."

She added, "We are committed to conducting a thorough investigation to determine the facts and ensure the safety and well-being of both the community and the animals involved.”

Overall, five adults and eight puppies were taken from the property by Animal Care and Control for "impoundment and examination." The victim's identity has not yet been released.
