Kane Minion, 42, was attacked by three large mixed-breed dogs, including a Bullmastiff and a Rhodesian Ridgeback, while visiting a home on Ison Road in the Greenbank suburb of Logan at 10:45 a.m. Saturday.
Mr. Minion had worked seven years for Downer’s Skilltech and was working as a contractor for Energex when he went to the property to read the energy meter.
A sign hung on the front door of the property warned visitors about the dangerous animals that lived in the house.
‘WARNING: Service Guard Dogs Do Not Enter,’ the sign read.
