METAMORA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police and animal control officers have removed five dogs from a Michigan home where two other dogs that fatally mauled a 46-year-old jogger were being kept.
The dogs were taken Friday from the Metamora Township house, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.
Police told the newspaper that the homeowner was not present when the five dogs were taken.
Craig Sytsma was attacked Wednesday evening by two Cane Corsos down the road from the home. He died of his wounds at a hospital. The dogs' 45-year-old owner turned the two Cane Corsos over to authorities and could face charges in the attack on Sytsma, who lived in the Detroit suburb of Livonia. Sytsma's stepson, Jordan Sytsma, tells the Detroit Free Press he believes the dogs "were looking to kill."
