On Monday 29th September a senior citizen of 81 years old was killed by his own dog. According to information from a neighbour, he spoke with the victim beforehand who said he was going to take a shower and would he look after a couple of his dogs*. When passing by the residence later, the neighbour noticed that the dogs were very restless and soon spotted the elderly man on the ground.
The Military Police and the Fire Department were called by the neighbour, but the elderly man was already dead. When they arrived at the victim's home, firefighters had difficulty recovering the body due to the aggressiveness of the dogs, so the Military Police tried to give them tranquilizers, but without success, and with it one of the animals had to be shot.
The deceased lived alone with the dogs, including one that had been rescued from the street four months ago. The old man was found with a deep bite on the neck.
