Police Horrified When They Discovered An 83-Year-Old Man Eaten Alive

A man in Florida was found dead in his neighbor's yard after their dogs attacked him. Witnesses say the elderly man's body had been dismembered by the vicious animals.

Michael Downing, 83, was the victim of a terrible animal attack. His neighbors' dogs found a hole in the fence and went into Downing's yard. The dogs attacked the elderly man and dragged him back into their yard. They proceeded to feed on him.

“By far it's probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Mackenzie Partin, one of the neighbors who stumbled upon Downing's remains. “There was only 30 percent left of his body probably.”

“They had dragged him underneath, back up underneath, to eat on him,” said Partin.

According to police, neighbors called authorities to report the dogs as being neglected back in April. The person making the report said the animals were kept in 'small pens' and 'living in filth.' He also alleged that the owner hit the animals with 'a closed fist.'

Police did investigate, but found the yard clean, no pens, no filth, and the animals in good condition. The owner was issued a warning. Neighbors believe if police had done something about it back then, Downing might have not been attacked.

“I knew it was coming, I knew someone was going to die, it was almost she and I,” said Mark Jones, another neighbor who had worried about the dogs.
