A 28-year-old man from the Moscow suburbs died after being mauled by a pack of wild dogs in eastern Moscow, a news report said Tuesday.

The man's body was found early Monday morning under a railway bridge, with "multiple bite wounds on his limbs, face and neck," Interfax reported, citing a source in the police department. Experts determined that the man died of blood loss and hypothermia.

"According to preliminary information, a pack of wild dogs attacked and mauled a passerby to death around 3 a.m. on Monday," the source said.
