A man found dead at a Selma home Tuesday night was mauled by pit bull dogs, a Fresno County sheriff's spokesman said.
The man was found about 7 p.m. in a yard on Highway 43, also known as South Highland Avenue, south of Nebraska Avenue and just west of the city limits.
Deputy Chris Curtice said a woman coming home discovered the body on her property as she pulled into her driveway.
Little was known Wednesday about the man. The coroner's office said it was working to identify him and hadn't determined a cause of death, and Curtice said he didn't have additional information to share about the man.
Detectives determined he had been mauled, Curtice said -- he had traumatic injuries, witnesses reported seeing dogs loose in the area Tuesday evening, and paw prints were seen around the body. Investigators tracked down four pit bulls at a nearby home, and each of the dogs had blood on it.
