Man mauled to death by 4 dogs in Jurupa Valley
JURUPA VALLEY, Calif. - A man was mauled to death by a group of dogs in Jurupa Valley Tuesday, according to Riverside County officials.
Riverside County Animal Services officers were called to a property near Bellegrave Avenue and Martin Street, after the Sheriff's Department received 911 calls about screaming in the area around 7:30 a.m.
42-year-old Mateo Salvador of Riverside was apparently at the home doing work for the homeowner when he was attacked by the four animals — three Belgian malinois and one cane corso. The dogs were owned by the property owner. According to officials, the property is a house that's been converted to a business. The property owner wasn't home at the time of the attack, but when he returned, he surrendered the animals to officials.
