Durban - Pit bull breeder Charles Murray, who was mauled by four of his dogs last week, has died, the Cape Argus reported on Monday.

Murray died in the intensive car unit of the Prince Mshiyani Hospital in Umlazi outside Durban at 15:00 on Saturday.

The dogs attacked the 48-year-old Murray when the car he was working on fell on him and he called for help.

He had had serious injuries to his neck, stomach, arms and legs. His left leg had to be amputated. He also suffered fractures, including broken ribs.

His wife Marie shot one of the dogs in the shoulder, but it did not stop the dog from attacking. Police killed two of the dogs, while the SPCA put down the other two.
