    ATLANTA (AP) — A former college professor and his wife were apparently attacked and killed by nearly a dozen dogs along a rural northeast Georgia road where their bodies were found mutilated, authorities said Monday.
    Preliminary autopsy results from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation showed Sherry Schweder, 65, likely died of injuries suffered in a dog attack, Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said. Autopsy results for her husband, Lothar Karl Schweder, 77, were not yet available, but Smith said it’s likely he was also attacked by dogs because the scene was so grisly.
    Smith said officials were going to round up at least 11 dogs seen in the area where the couple’s mutilated bodies were found Saturday morning by five passers-by.
    It wasn’t immediately clear whether the mixed-breed dogs, which are to be captured by animal control officers from neighboring Madison County, were feral or someone’s pets. There had been no recent complaints about vicious dogs in the area, Smith said.

    The only two Lothars I'd heard of before today are Matthaus and Of The Hill People.

    You know... on the "horrible ways to die" list, getting eaten by dogs would have to be up there.

    Marie Provost did not look her best
    The day the cops bust into her lonely nest
    in the cheap hotel up on Hollywood west
    July 29

    She'd been lyin' there for two or three weeks
    The neighbors said they never heard a squeak
    While hungry eyes that could not speak
    said even little doggies have got to eat

    She was a winner that became a doggie's dinner
    She never meant that much to me
    Whoa oh poor Marie

    Marie Provost was a movie queen
    mysterious angel of the silent screen
    And run like the wind the nation's young men steamed
    When Marie crossed the silent screen

    Whoa she came out west from New York
    but when the talkies came Marie just couldn't cope
    The public said Marie take a walk
    All the way back to New York

    -repeat chorus-

    Those quaalude bombs didn't help her sleep
    As her nights grew long and her days grew bleak
    It's all downhill once you've passed your peak
    Marie got ready for that last big sleep

    The cops came in and they looked around
    Throwin' up everywhere over what they found
    The handiwork of Marie's little dachshund
    That hungry little dachshund

    -repeat chorus-

    poor Marie

    I assume it's too soon to make a tenure joke?

    Jeebus poindexter, what's the deal with that second dog? It doesn't look terribly happy to be the canine version of Mr. Olympia.

    Sounds like there were 11 not too happy with the 60 Minutes interview.

    This is a dog-bites-man story. Yawn.
