Be forewarned: This one's going to be pretty rough. According to KNBC.com, a man was mauled to death by a dog on Ving Rhames' property:
A dog mauling incident was reported at the home of actor Ving Rhames on Friday morning, and one person is reported dead, according to police.
Police said they got a call at about 7:15 am about a body on a lawn with bite marks. The victim, believed to be a property caretaker, was described as a Black male in his 40s.
Two dogs, reportedly Mastiffs, were captured by animal control officers.
A reader who happened to be in the area in the ensuing chaos, and who didn't initially know what was going on outside the home, wrote in with this report from the scene:
There have been helicopters, police and rubberneckers outside a mcmansion on san vicente near the country mart for the past two hours—when I went over to check it out, I was told by several people that a "maid had been killed by the dog." nobody really seemed concerned about the loss of human life; in fact, people were taking pictures of the developing crime scene in the house's driveway with their iphones, at which point I decided to go curl up under the covers with a bottle of tequila and wait for the coming apocalypse.
We'll probably wind up settling for draining a bottle of tequila at our desks for the rest of the day.
