A 84-year-old was savagely mauled after two boxers in Zephyrhills, FL. The date when the incident happened is uncertain, however.
News reports indicate that the victim was walking to get his newspaper when the dogs, after having escaped from a nearby property, knocked the victim to the ground, latched on to his arms and legs, and were “ripping flesh with every bite.”
A neighbor of the victim told news reporters that “When I opened up the door, I heard John screaming, dogs attacking, and I went running,” he said. The neighbor surprisingly was able to fend off the two boxers until police arrived and killed them both dogs. A beware of dog” sign was posted outside the home of the property from which the dogs escaped. The owners of the boxers told investigators the dogs managed to get through a hole in a backyard fence. the dogs had escaped from the property through this hole on a previous occasion.
News reports indicated that the victim continued to improve subsequent to the attack in his condition in the hospital was upgraded from serious to stable. This post, which admittedly is not particularly unusual or noteworthy, is documented on dogexpert.com to build the database about dog bites inflicted by boxers.
