A resident of Wschowa (Lubusz Voivodeship) reported to the services that her husband did not return from a walk with his dog. The body of a 60-year-old man with bite wounds was found the same day. Investigators suspect that the man may have been attacked by his own Amstaff.
Information about the investigation into the death of the 60-year-old was provided by Ewa Antonowicz, spokeswoman for the District Prosecutor’s Office in Zielona Góra. The proceedings are supervised by the District Prosecutor’s Office in Wschowa.
– There were numerous bite and lacerations on the man’s body in the arms and forearms. Therefore, one of the investigators’ versions assumes that the 60-year-old’s death could have been the result of an attack by an Amstaff dog that he owned, said prosecutor Antonowicz.
The dog was euthanized
As the spokeswoman noted, due to the interests of the preparatory proceedings, the prosecutor’s office is currently not providing any more details and is analyzing different versions of the course of the event. Investigators are also waiting for the exact results of the autopsy. The tests also include samples taken from the dog that was euthanized.
– Perhaps more information about the circumstances of the case will be available next week – added Antonowicz.
The body of a resident of Wschowa with numerous wounds was found on Monday evening. That day, his wife reported him missing, informing the services that he had not returned home from walking his dog.
Information about the described event was published on Friday on its website by “Gazeta Lubuska”.
