Mountain Ranch, CA - Jerry Yates, 69, was mauled to death by two pit bulls owned by Sheryl Sellers August 22. Sellers has since pleaded not guilty to the felony of knowingly having a mischievous animal, letting it be at large or keeping it without ordinary care, resulting in the death a person. Calaveras Enterprise1 journalist and video author, Joel Metzer, talks to Jami Southard as she recounts the events that occurred on the day of her father's death.
What's notably missing from the video are the six cars that were formerly parked on the property, as well as Seller's mobile home. Viewers will have to use their imagination to picture how the property appeared on the day of August 22. You will learn that Yates tried to get inside one of the vehicles to escape the attack, that blood covered two vehicles -- the two Yates was between during the attack -- and that the dogs continued biting him after he died.
