SANTA FE, GALVESTON COUNTY TX - A 53-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS FATALLY MAULED BY A RELATIVE'S DOGS ...A NEIGHBOR REPORTS THERE HAVE BEEN NOISES COMING FROM THE PROPERTY THAT SOUNDED LIKE DOG FIGHTING


Mar 20, 2019A 53-year-old man died at Mainland Medical Center on Wednesday after being attacked by three dogs at his family’s property outside of Santa Fe. 
Jimmy Lee Grigg lived on the same property in the 5600 block of Highland Road as several other family members. The Griggs have owned the property for decades. 
Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochessett said he had received confirmation on Friday that the cause of death was ruled to be blood loss from the dog attack. 
Trochessett said a relative made a call for emergency services at approximately 3:30 p.m. Grigg was alive upon arrival of EMS personnel to the residence, but was later pronounced dead at Mainland Medical Center in Texas City. 
Jody Giamfortone, who has lived across the street and been a friend of the Griggs since 1967, said there has never been a problem with vicious dogs from the property. The only misbehavior he has seen from the Griggs’ pets was when they once rummaged through his trash before one of the Griggs remedied the situation. 
Jimmy Lee Grigg was attacked by THREE DOGS owned by a relative who also lived on the property. Trochessett said all the dogs were of MIXED BREED, INCLUDING A HEELER AND MASTIFF MIX. It is unknown at this time why the dogs attacked Grigg, but Trochessett said an investigation is ongoing. 
________________________________________________
 - A Galveston County man is dead after being mauled by a pack of dogs Wednesday afternoon.
According to authorities, the incident happened around 4 p.m. outside a home on Highland Road near Santa Fe.

Authorities say at least three dogs FROM AN UNKNOWN BREED  attacked the 53-year-old man. He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“How do you even let that happen, honestly? Were the dogs not in a pen or what?” asked Katie Ewing, a neighbor.
The unleashed dogs belong to a relative of the victim.  Family members at the scene were visibly emotional following the mauling.
 “The family is distraught. They were at the hospital with their loved ones,” Sheriff Trochesset said.
“Every morning for a good month straight it sounded like there was like dog fights going on,” Ewing said.
The neighbor says she’s filed several complaints with animal control.
“Whenever the animal people would go out there, they said, ‘Oh, it looks all normal to me,’” she continued.
The owner of the dogs surrendered them to the Galveston County Animal Resource Center.
The victim’s name has not been released, and no charges have been filed in this case.

Unknown breed? It sounds like pit bulls to me!

Let me rethink this. The dogs killed a man. The police and or media and or animal control are trying to downplay the breed involved. It sounded like dog fighting going on. A neighbor made several reports to animal control and nothing was done.

Definitely pit bulls.

BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION WOULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS
