CAPE TOWN – A family is grieving for their boy who was bitten to death by two dogs in the Hillview area.
It is believed that the dogs attacked six-year-old in a road earlier this week. The two animals escaped from their owner’s property.
It is alleged a gate had been left open.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Belinda Abrahams says the dogs have been put down.
“There’s always a reason why dogs bite. Power breeds are unfairly getting a bad reputation in the media and people have to realise that all dogs can bite, it’s not just power breed.
“Unfortunately, an attack by a power breed is obviously a lot more severe and in this instant has been fatal.”
