A 70 year old man has been attacked and killed by his pet dog, a Belgian shepherd.
The attack happened last night. Emergency services were alerted by a neighbour of the man, who reported hearing the sounds of a dog attack inside the home, but who couldn’t get inside because of the aggressive attitude of the animal.
Local police broke into the home with the aid of the fire service and managed to restrain the dog. But the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
It happened in the Infante Don Juan Manuel area of Murcia city.
