“This happened yesterday in my area. The boy’s father was on his way to work when he received a call that one of his dogs had mauled his son to death”.

According to the father of the deceased, because the five dogs were highly familiar with his children, he only let out two to guard the compound. He remarked that his four-year-old son always put the dogs in their cages, so he had no idea that something like this might happen.


When he returned home, he encountered his son dead in the pool of his blood. He was told that if it hadn’t been for the quick action of neighbors who killed the dog, the dog would have also mauled the boy’s sister.
