Dugny: the police had to neutralize two dogs who were attacking their mistress

The police had to use extreme means to put an end to a real killing game between two dogs and a 43-year-old woman, in Dugny (Seine-Saint-Denis), Wednesday, around 5 a.m. They had no choice but to shoot the two dogs with their service weapon to make them let go.

The two dogs were still attacking their mistress when the police arrived. Residents had been alerted by the cries of the unfortunate woman, which had lasted “for five to six minutes”, according to a Source close to the case. “It seemed like the dogs were fighting over her, she had become their prey. One pulled her to the left, the other to the right. They dragged her for several meters,” continues this Source. A scene of rare savagery was described by witnesses.

This 43-year-old woman was taking her partner’s dogs out for a walk when they pounced on her. These are dogs “of the Malinois type and a German shepherd”, specifies this Source. The reasons for this attack remain unknown at this time. “If the police had not quickly intervened, we wonder if she would still be alive,” says our Source.

The victim suffered “serious” injuries, particularly to one arm, but, contrary to what one rumor claimed, “her arm was not amputated”, confirms the prosecution. The victim was transported to the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital (Paris 13th arrondissement). His days are not in danger. She had not yet been heard this Thursday due to her condition.

The hounds, still alive despite the shooting but seriously injured, were taken to a veterinarian, where “the decision to euthanize them was taken jointly by the prefectural services for the protection of the population, from the municipal elected official to the animal cause and the veterinarian,” specifies Quentin Gesell, the mayor (DVD) of Dugny. “The City had already been alerted to the dangerousness of these dogs,” adds the elected official.

An investigation is underway for “unintentional injuries”, adds the prosecution. The dog owner was questioned by the police.
