BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Hungarian police say they are investigating an incident in which an elderly man may have been mauled to death by two donkeys.

It happened May 13 in the western Hungarian town of Magyarszecsod, when Sandor Horvath, a 65-year-old retired firefighter, was apparently pulled off his motorcycle by the donkeys kept on a lot neighboring his small farm. The animals likely dragged him some 50 meters (55 yards), biting and trampling him.

Vas County Police said Tuesday they are still working on the case but had no new developments to report.

The results of an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death have not been released.

The donkeys are being kept under observation for another week before their fate is decided.
