A Texas man was left without a huge portion of his nose – after it fell underneath his neighbor’s car – while he was viciously attacked by a pair of pit bulls. 

Marcus Kizaza is now unwilling to leave his home without a facemask because of the damage. He watched the dogs on a Ring camera before they leaped and bit him outside his Fort Worth home. 

Originally, Kizaza’s children had noticed the dogs on the video and thought they were cute.

He then approached them from the driveway, with wife Leslie initially saying they were ‘friendly’ to Marcus and jumping on him.

Soon, however, they began to attack him, with Marcus calling out for his wife and trying to run away from them.

The dogs eventually bit his hands, face and legs, tearing off the portion of his nose before he could jump on top of a white truck that belonged to a neighbor, according to NBCDFW.

‘He was yelling really loud and the dogs were really vicious. We realized that there was part of his nose under our car,’ Bianca Mireles, a neighbor who called 911 said.

The EMTs and firefighters who came to help Kizaza out had to fend off the dogs themselves, Mireles noted. 

‘The dogs were just trying to attack whoever was around. So, if you were on the ground, they were going to attack you.’ 

One of the dogs was killed after being struck with a patrol car, authorities in Fort Worth confirmed.

‘I just saw afterward them taking the dog away in a big red bag and then them spraying the ground with water,’ Mireles said.

Local animal control officials were able to get the second dog away from the scene. 

Kizaza spent over a week in the hospital, undergoing multiple surgeries to successfully reattach his nose before he was able to return home.

‘I’m feeling better now, but I’m having a pain on my knee and my finger too,’ Kizaza said. 

Detectives in Fort Worth said that the owners, who were not identified, have been issued two citations for unrestrained dogs.

Wife Leslie doesn’t think they’ve done enough and the family desperately needs to help make ends meet.

‘We still have the mortgage to pay. We still have kids to feed. So, that’s why I need to know where is the dog’s owner,’ she said. 

Marcus has been left with pain, problems speaking and is too embarrassed to leave the house without a mask.

‘I can’t speak a lot. I don’t just want people to just see this, you know?’ 

Attorney for the family Cole McNeal said the family isn’t working and have expenses to pay off. He plans to advocate for police to press charges and file a civil suit.

‘We want to gather all the information and make sure that the proper individuals are included,’ McNeal said. ‘The person that owns the house, the person that leases the house, individuals that live there, the dog owners.’
