A spokesman for Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn III said in an email that police in Dighton responded to a 911 call about a dead male at a property in town at about 8 p.m. Thursday. The call was made by a neighbor who found the body.

The dogs were taken into custody by animal control.

The death remains under investigation but authorities say foul play is not suspected.
