More dogs taken from house after attack on Michigan jogger |

Police and animal control officers removed five dogs from a Michigan home where two other dogs that fatally mauled a 46-year-old jogger were being kept.

The dogs’ owner was not at the house in Metamora Township when the animals were taken Friday, according to

Two cane corsos from the property attacked Craig Sytsma as he jogged Wednesday along a road in the community, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.

Sytsma, who lived in the Detroit suburb of Livonia, later died from his wounds at a hospital.

The 45-year-old dog owner turned the two cane corsos over to authorities and could face charges in the attack. Those two dogs were being held in quarantine at the Lapeer County Animal Control.

Their owner’s name has not been released by police.

Dogs associated with the Metamora Township home have been involved in two other dog bite cases over the past two years. Authorities were not immediately sure if the same dogs in those cases were the ones that attacked Sytsma who decided to jog after leaving work at Eltro Services in nearby northern Oakland County.

Jordan Sytsma said the dogs that attacked his stepfather “were looking to kill.”

“They were looking to eat a human being,” the 23-year-old Sytsma told the Detroit Free Press.

Funeral services for Craig Sytsma are scheduled at 11 a.m. Friday at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Jenison.
