A Two -Years-Six-months child is fighting for her life in the Livingstone Central Hospital after two German Shepherds attacked her alongside two other relatives.
Southern Province Deputy Police Commissioner, Alfred Nawa, says his office received a report in which three people were attacked by the dogs along Kalukuluku Street in Livingstone.
Mr. Nawa explains that according to details by Mambwe Mwelwa, a parent to the children, the incident occurred on 13th March 2022 when she was walking to her residence with the three victims when her neighbors’ children came out of their residence and left the gate open which let the two German Shepherds loose and charged on the three victims.
He adds the female infant had her throat and stomach ripped off by the vicious dogs while the two other victims sustained multiple wounds on their bodies.
Police officers are yet to visit the crime scene hence the owner of the two pets has not been summoned.
The victims are currently admitted in the Livingstone Central Hospital.
