BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) — A man who was fatally mauled by one of his dogs was a teacher and the husband of a former Bullhead City mayor who also was injured by the dog.

Bullhead City police said 64-year-old Thomas J. Vick and 65-year-old Diane Vick were injured Saturday when they tried to break up a fight between their dogs, a boxer and a cocker spaniel. Police Lt. Nick Sessions said the boxer turned on the Vicks and began attacking them.

Tom Vick died of his injuries Sunday morning. He taught social studies at Mohave High School. Diane Vick was hospitalized in Las Vegas.

The dogs are being held at the Bullhead City Animal Control facility.
