A chihuahua was killed on Sunday by another dog, in the town of Etaules (Côte-d’Or), near Dijon. This tragedy occurred in the middle of the street, while the little animal was walking with a ten-year-old girl, reports France Bleu Bourgogne. He was attacked by an American Staffordshire type dog.
According to information from Good public, the mastiff would have escaped from its enclosure and burst into the street. He then allegedly fatally injured the Chihuahua. The little girl, on the other hand, was not injured but is in a state of shock.
The dog seized and its owners summoned
The owners of the American Staffordshire were summoned by the gendarmes. The military must determine if the dog has been declared and if its masters have the necessary authorizations to keep this animal considered dangerous.
At the request of the Dijon public prosecutor, the dog was placed at the SPA. It must be examined and evaluated by a veterinarian.
