BAKER CITY, Ore., (CBS 2) —
A 53-year-old Oregon man has died after he was bit by a pit bull inside his home in Baker City.
The Baker County District Attorney's Office says Mitchelle Dean Segerdahl was found dead in his home Sept. 9 along with six pit bulls. Officials say it appears as if Segerdahl was trying to break up a fight between the dogs when he received a fatal bite.
Two of the six dogs were found dead inside the home.
The district attorney says the four remaining dogs were impounded and were later euthanized.
