Dog Kills New Owner!

An animal lover has been mauled to death by a Rottweiler he had adopted just hours earlier.



Father-of-two Anthony Riggs, 57, was found fatally mauled on the floor of his home in Jackson, Tennessee, by his wife when she returned home last Thursday.

Emergency services pronounced him dead at the scene.

Sheriff's deputies shot the five-year-old dog after it ran out of the house.

Madison County Sheriff's Office said Mr Riggs had adopted the Rottweiler that morning from a county-run animal control facility.

The stray had been picked up five days earlier and showed no signs of aggression while at rabies control, according to the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department.

The Jackson Sun reports that Mr Riggs' wife, Kathy Riggs, and her colleague, Teresa Sanchez, were also bitten by the dog after they came home.

"He wasn't growling or showing teeth he just bit us like he did it all the time or something," Ms Sanchez wrote on Facebook.

"It was unreal what that dog did and he should NEVER have been adopted out period."

Mr Riggs' ex-wife, Adrienne Riggs, said he had loved dogs.

"Sometimes I thought he related to dogs better than to people," she told the Jackson Sun.
