Default Ving Rhames dogs attack and kill worker...

http://www.abcnews.go.com/Entertainm...ory?id=3445071

Not sure the breed but the reports say at least two are Mastiffs

Some reports are saying all four dogs were Mastiffs. I have never heard of an Eng Mastiff attacking anyone.

there are lots of mastiff breeds other than english mastiffs. and mastiffs are guardian breed dogs.

i'll be curious what the autopsy reveals. it's entirely possible that he died from other causes (heart attack, whatever) and the dogs got at his body.

I have seen scary EMs before but I have never heard of one actually attacking and doing serious damage.

Did anyone read some of the comments people wrote on the stories....people still want to blame pit bulls....and clearly none of these dogs are Pit Bulls

Any idiot who believes he would have gotten away from four mastiffs of any kind if they'd been intent on killing him - or even hurting him - is, well, an idiot.

And WTF does him having or not having Filas have to do with anything, since it seems they weren't even involved?

I watched one of the videos where the talking head for the police was on camera . . . what an idiot. Every other phrase was some sensational adjectives strung together to make a sexy newsclip guaranteed to get on some celebrity news crapola show - right after the gratuitous nightly Lindsay Lohan story . . . .
