Allen was reportedly out for a walk when he was attacked, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
"Upon completing a thorough investigation, it was determined that the subject had been walking in the roadway when he suffered life-threatening injuries from an animal attack," the Sheriff's Office said. "The injuries are believed to have been caused by a pack of stray dogs roaming in the area."
Authorities said that Animal Control is setting up traps in the area to capture the canines.
