According to Tuesday's publication of USA Today, every dog who lived at the Bullhead City, Ariz., home where a deadly dog attack took place last weekend, will be destroyed.

Tom Vick, 64, died on Sunday after being severely bitten by one of the family's dogs when he tried to break up a fight between a boxer and a cocker spaniel. Vick's wife, Diane, was also severely injured in the Saturday night incident and she remains hospitalized for those injuries today.

The cocker spaniel involved in the fight suffered fatal wounds.

Though only the boxer is implicated in the attack on the owners, it appears that the family wants every dog from their home to be put down; five dogs from the Vick home are currently being held by the Bullhead City Animal Control facility for a 10-day quarantine.

Tom Vick was a social studies teacher at the Mohave High School and his wife was the former mayor of Bullhead City.
