ROGERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) – A southwest Missouri man has died from injuries he suffered in mid-November when he said he was attacked by a pack of dogs.

The Springfield News-Leader reports 85-year-old Werner Vogt of Rogersville died Friday at a hospital.

Vogt told officers he was attacked while bike riding on Nov. 12 in a heavily wooded area southeast of Rogersville in Christian County. A grandson found him barely conscious on the road.

Christian County Sheriff Brad Cole says he’s asked a wildlife expert in Florida to examine photos of Vogt’s “severe” wounds to determine what type of animals attacked Vogt.

Cole says no one has reported seeing any packs of dogs in the area where Vogt was attacked, and officers who canvassed the area did not find a pack of dogs.
