Two dogs mauled an alleged intruder to death last week at a home in Georgia, authorities say. The dead man’s body was discovered on the homeowner’s porch after the suspected mauling incident.
According to law enforcement, Alex Binyam Abraha, 21, made his way into the two-bedroom house located in a rural area of Newnan, Ga. on Sept. 24.
Coweta County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene sometime after 10:30 a.m. in response to a report that someone was dead on the property. That someone was Abraha; his corpse had been found by the resident of the property that same morning.
According to The Newnan Times-Herald, the sheriff’s department worked with homicide investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation — though the case was eventually not ruled a homicide.
On Wednesday, the newspaper reported that a medical examiner with the GBI ruled that Abraha’s cause of death was mauling, citing CCSO Investigator Toby Nix. By definition and practice, a homicide legally cannot occur when a human being is killed by a non-human animal.
According to law enforcement, evidence suggests that the mauled man made entry into the home before quickly encountering the two large dogs.
Doug Evans, a journalist with local Fox affiliate WAGA-TV, shared photos of the canines late Wednesday afternoon via Twitter:

According to Evans’ WAGA-TV report, investigators say that Abraha died outside the home after gaining entry and being attacked. The homeowner told law enforcement that he does not know the man who is said to have entered his home and died there — and that he had no idea why the man gained entry in the first place.
The outlet also reports that authorities do not anticipate filing any criminal charges against the person who lives in the home on Walt Sanders Road in north Coweta County.
Multiple news organizations have reported that the animals believed to have killed the man were seized by authorities as part of their initial investigation. The dogs are currently in the custody of Coweta County Animal Services, which operates under the auspices of the county’s Department of Corrections.
There is currently no word on what fate awaits the two animals. The prospect of the dogs not making their way home, however, has been criticized by a number of people on social media.
Law&Crime reached out to various local and state authorities for additional details on this story, but no response was immediately forthcoming at the time of publication.

return the dogs to the landowner, they did what they were trained to do PROTECT THE HOMEOWNER the fool broke in to the house. he had no business there and the dogs being in the house protected the owner. GOOD DOGS..HOW LONG WAS THE PERP’S WRAP SHEET ????.
Return the Dogs to their owner, so They can treat the Dogs to a Steak Dinner
Didn’t anyone question the racket the dogs were making during the mailing?
During the MAULING, for f*ecks sake.?
By law the dogs need to be returned to their owner right now. And not destroyed they did nothing wrong. To kill them would be wrong.
Return the dogs all they were doing was protecting the house and the owner. If he hadn’t broken in he wouldn’t have been mauled.
How would you feel if someone violated your home and your dogs protected your property from an invader? What if you or your family had been there? Those 2 dogs did what they were trained to do. Protect.
Get them back home where they belong.
Amen Amen, they are two few doge that would have protected their home and they were in the right. I looked this up and it depends on your state you live in but all confirmed the dog in his own home has the right to defend its self and it’s living quarters or home!
Cut the TAX PAID WELFRE and CUT THE TAX $$$$ PAID CRIMES!! CUT the TXA PAID WELFARE, CUT THE TAX PAID DEMORATS VOTES!!
GOOD FOR THE DOGS. THEY WERE PROTECTING THEIR OWNER. IF NOT THE DOGS, THE CRIMINAL MAY HAVE BEEN SHOT DEAD. GIVE THE DOGS BACK SO THE OWNER CAN GIVE THEM TREATS!
Return the dogs immediately. They did their job. That’s why I feed,vet,train and love mine. The ,ow life scum who trespassed on that owners property got a proper welcome. You now have the same mentality as the corpse, in the beuarocrats,the left wing radicals, blm,an5ifa,and neonates. THEY TAKE IT AS THEIR RIGHT TOO BE FEL9NS.. TWO DOGS PROVE THEM WRONG. A STEAK RARE FOR THESE TWO BEAUTIFUL AMERICANS
First off I’d like to say that I don’t think it would be right if you put the dogs down. Because they were defending their owner their property and their home. Somebody broke in they knew they wouldn’t supposed to be there so they did what they were trained to do. If they mom the guy to death well that’s the guy’s fault for breaking into the property and obviously it was no one there to call him off so if he didn’t try to get away and he just let him keep biting him and he didn’t try to run to get away from them that’s it that’s also his fault. So please take the dogs home because they do not need to be murdered because that’s what you’ll be doing to them if you put them to sleep for something they was trained to do.
The 2 dogs were doing their JOB !! Maybe the scam bags will think twice before trying to rob someone. Don’t hurt the dogs that what you got them for protection. They deserve nice juicy STEAK!!!!
