A Florida man was attacked and killed by a pack of stray dogs that still remain on the loose, say police
A man was found dead Wednesday along the side of the road in rural Jackson County, the victim of an apparent dog attack.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said it received a report at 7:48 a.m. Wednesday of a man lying next to Kirkland Road, around the Bascom area not far from the Alabama line.

Deputies and troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the area and confirmed the man was deceased, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

He was identified as Donald Ray Allen, 65, of Bascom.


"Upon completing a thorough investigation, it was determined that the subject had been walking in the roadway when he suffered life-threatening injuries from an animal attack," the Sheriff's Office said. "The injuries are believed to have been caused by a pack of stray dogs roaming in the area."

The Sheriff's Office said investigators have been in contact with Animal Control, which will be placing traps in the area.

Anyone with information about the dogs are asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 850-482-9624 or Animal Control at 850-718-0021.
