KUALA LUMPUR ? A 50-year-old Irish man has died after being mauled by two dogs at a farm on Malaysia's Penang island, police said Sunday.

Penang police chief Ayub Yaakob said that Maurice Sullivan had ventured into the organic farm with his 28-year-old Polish girlfriend to take photos of its orchard when he was set upon by the dogs.

"They went there by themselves to the orchard, the owner was not there," he told AFP.

"The girlfriend was some distance away when suddenly the dogs attacked the victim, one of them in particular was very fierce so he got injured.?

?The girlfriend called the villagers in the area for help, so they called the police but by the time they arrived he was not conscious. We are not sure whether he was already dead but he was sent to hospital and pronounced dead."

The Star newspaper said that both Sullivan's ears were severed and his chin almost torn off in the attack which took place on Sunday morning. It said he also suffered multiple injuries and bites to his body.

Ayub confirmed the Irishman suffered wounds to his head but he did "not have a full report" on the injuries and was still awaiting the post mortem results to determine the cause of death.

The farm is located in Teluk Bahang, which lies on the northwestern tip of Penang island, one of Malaysia's premier tourism destinations.
