DETROIT (AP) — An autopsy shows that a Detroit man who police say was partly devoured by an animal in his home died of natural causes.

The Detroit Free Press reports part of the man's leg was chewed off. The badly decomposed body was found by relatives Monday afternoon on the city's northwest side.

WWJ-AM says a medical examiner determined Tuesday that the man died of natural causes.

Sgt. Michael Woody says investigators aren't sure if a dog or another animal gnawed on the remains.

Thousands of stray dogs reportedly roam Detroit's streets, living in vacant houses and buildings. But raccoons, opossums and other wild creatures are finding refuge in the city which has lost more than one million people since the 1950s.
