Kingstown, St. Vincent: A seven-year-old girl has been left traumatized after a dangerous dog attacked and killed her pet dog – Coffee, Wednesday, at Indian Bay.
The seven-year-old’s aunt, Isha Bibby, and friends were walking towards Indian Bay beach on Wednesday afternoon when a dangerous dog, which was on the public road, emerged and charged at them.
In a surveillance video published on Facebook and Instagram by One News SVG on Wednesday, three people were spotted fleeing from a dangerous dog. One of them was Isha Bibby, who was walking her seven-year-old niece’s pet dog – Coffee. In the video, Isha was pursued by a dangerous dog, attacked, and had to climb on the concrete fence of nearby property for safety.
Also in the video, the pet dog – Coffee, was ripped by the dangerous dog.
The pet dog – Coffee, is now dead.
The seven-year-old was supposed to go to the beach with her aunt, Isha, on the same day of the incident to take the pet – Coffee for a walk, but her mother sent her to her another aunt’s place instead that day.
The mother of the seven-year-old told One News SVG on Thursday, that her sister Isha who was attacked by the dangerous dog, and her daughter, whose pet was killed are both traumatized by the incident.
She said her seven-year-old daughter is mourning the loss of her puppy – Coffee, which she received as a gift.
“She kept crying all morning,” her mother said.
The seven year old mother said her daughter doesn’t want a new puppy, she wants back Coffee.
“No mommy, I don’t want a new puppy, I need my Coffee,” the seven-year-old’s mother told One News her daughter said.
“It’s more like a human being to her than an animal,” she told One News SVG.
“They’re home here mourning like when a family died,” the mother said.
The mother said she too is traumatized knowing that it could have been her sister who was killed. She said it could have even her seven-year-old daughter who was supposed to go along that evening to the beach.
She said an investigation has been launched into the matter.
i have always spoken about the owners of these pit bulls and other dangerous dogs that they walk time to time on the beach. these dogs should not be allowed to be no where near beaches that’s been utilized by people, why isn’t the authorities putting a ban to this and guys who comes to the beach with their football who has no respect for other persons who goes there wishing to just relax and enjoy the beach? this is totally crazy
