(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – Demarcus “Sam” McKenzie, 27, from Alabama, was found dead on July 29 by acquaintances in front of a home driveway. Originally, the police that had responded to the scene believed that the man had been shot, but Dale County Sheriff Mason Bynum revealed that after reviewing the security footage, the man was seen being attacked by a group of dogs, whom he had tried to run away from.
As he noted in his statement, the victim had tried to run down the driveway while there were two or three more dogs who were chasing after him. He added that at one point, five to six dogs had started to attack the victim, who was unable to stand. In time, the dogs completely overpowered him, and the man became incapacitated.
It is not yet known who the owner of the dogs is or if he is going to face charges for this incident. In the U.S., 4 million people are bitten by dogs every year. The American Veterinary Medical Association noted that around one in five dog bites will usually need some form of medical attention.
It is uncommon for anyone to die from a dog attack, with the average number of people dying from dog attacks every year being 33.
It has not yet been revealed what breeds of dogs were involved in the attack. There are certain larger breeds, such as Rottweilers and pit bulls, that are more commonly associated with dog attacks. As a result, these breeds have been banned in some countries despite the fact that they have been shown to not be more aggressive than other breeds.
