    A man in Jackson, Tennessee, who adopted a dog Thursday morning ended up being killed by the canine just a few hours later.

    Anthony Riggs, 57, adopted the 5-year-old male Rottweiler from Jackson-Madison County Rabies Control, the area's animal control agency, shortly before 10 a.m., The Jackson Sun reports.

    Riggs' ex-wife said he was a good man who loved animals.

    “He never hesitated to be with dogs,” Adrienne Riggs told the paper. “Sometimes I thought he related to dogs better than to people.”


    By 3:30 p.m., Riggs was dead in his home and officers were investigating the incident. His wife, Kathy Riggs, dropped by their home with a coworker in the afternoon and found her husband dead.

    "The husband was all chewed up," Madison County Sheriff's Dept. spokesman Tom Mapes told The Huffington Post. "There was blood everywhere. The sheriff's report said [Riggs] was found 'mortally wounded on the floor from the dog attack.'"

    The dog also bit Kathy Riggs and her coworker before running out of the house, where he was shot on sight by sheriff's deputies.

    Deputies feared the dog would attack people gathered outside, Mapes told WBBJ-TV.

    "It's just one of those tragic stories that we want to encourage people to adopt pets, but then you have a situation like this that occurs, and it just is mind-boggling. It's disheartening," he said.

    His wife's coworker, later identified as Teresa Sanchez, posted on the Jackson Sun's Facebook page that the dog wasn't growling or showing teeth, according to the paper.

    “He just bit us like he did it all the time or something,” Sanchez wrote on Facebook. “It was unreal what that dog did and he should NEVER have been adopted out period.”

    The dog will be autopsied for signs of rabies, other disease and signs of recent abuse, Kim Tedford, director of the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department, told the Jackson Sun.

    “It was a stray running at large, so we have no idea if the dog had been vaccinated or not,” she said.

    Tennessee law requires strays to be held for at least three days and given food and water, but they are not required to be examined or tested, Tedford explained to USA Today.

    She added that the Rottweiler who killed Riggs showed no signs of aggression while at Rabies Control, and there were no reports of the dog biting any officers.

    “We by no means would adopt an animal out that showed any signs of aggression,” she said.

    However, Riggs' ex-wife, Adrienne Riggs, is skeptical.

    “I don’t believe what they said. I just don’t," she told the Jackson Sun. "A docile dog does not turn in three hours and kill somebody. Something was wrong.”

    it makes me sad, but adopting an adult rottweiler or shepherd or doberman probably isn't the greatest idea.

    cue the dog lovers yelling at me in 3...2...1...

    Those fucks at the pound are just the used car salesmen for dogs. They will show you a dog and if he snarls they go "Oh he never did that before" gotta make room for new inventory you know. I got a pound dog 50lb they said he was full grown he DOUBLED in size in 6 mo. We didn't even get out of the parking lot before he bit my wife. As an 80lb dog he went crazy attacking everyone who came over. It cost 500$ in lessons to break him of biting ppl
