DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police want a felony charge from prosecutors after a pack of pit bulls severely mauled a Detroit man.

The Detroit Free Press reports police want a charge of harboring a vicious animal causing serious injury against the owner, who previously received misdemeanor citations.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says a decision is pending.

The 61-year-old owner was arrested on an unrelated warrant after the Oct. 2 attack, but was released a few days later. Police initially said they didn’t expect criminal charges, saying it appeared there was no malicious intent on behalf of the dogs’ owner.

The 50-year-old who was attacked reportedly lost most of one arm and had his head and other limbs bitten. Police killed one dog at the scene and rounded up at least 11 others.
