Florida man, 63, left in pool of blood after pack of bulldogs viciously attack him on the way home
All five bulldogs involved in the attack were seized by Miami-Dade Animal Services.
MIAMI, FLORIDA: A CCTV video has captured the terrifying moment a pack of dogs viciously attack and maul a man, leaving him in a pool of blood, as he innocently walked home.
Jaques Notis, 63, was making his way back home from work in Miami-Dade earlier this week when he was suddenly attacked by a group of five dogs believed to be American Bulldogs outside a home in the 1100 Block of Northwest 103rd Street, according to Daily Mail.
In a CCTV clip, he can be seen looking towards a fence before he's thrown to the ground when one of the dogs jumps on him. Seconds later, three more dogs pounce on him and start attacking even as he desperately tries to fend them off.
A fourth dog then joins the melee, with a man who watched the attack unfold rushing towards him to help. Soon, a few others also join in and surround the 63-year-old in a bid to scare the dogs away, but to little avail. The pack finally backs off when one of the men with a 2-by-4 piece of timber approaches them.
Notis was rushed to the Ryder Trauma Center after the attack and underwent surgery and a blood transfusion. His daughter told CBS that this was not the first time that the dogs had been violent, and that they had previously attacked two little children before.
The dogs' owner said he was not at home when they set upon Notis but insisted they had never been so aggressive with anyone. He said he accepted full responsibility for the attack and will pay the 63-year-old.
While it is unclear if he will face any criminal charges, Miami-Dade Animal Services said five bulldogs had been seized after the incident and that they will remain in custody "until the outcome of the dangerous dog investigation."
