Katy, Texas (CNN) — A 96-year-old man has died after being mauled to death by several dogs in his neighborhood.
According to investigators, family members found the man's body.
Authorities say as many as five dogs attacked him.
A family pet was also severely injured and will likely need to be put down.
Animal control has captured the five dogs in the area and are trying to determine which were involved in the gruesome attack.
The dogs are believed to be mostly pit bulls or pit bull mixes.
According to a neighbor, the man was outside nearly everyday and in very good health despite his age.
