HANOVER GERMANY - A WHEELCHAIR-BOUND WOMAN AND HER 27-YEAR-OLD SON WERE FATALLY MAULED IN THEIR HOME BY THEIR PET STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER

The bodies of the 52-year-old woman and her 27-year-old son were discovered by the woman's daughter, who had gone to their flat in Hanover, Germany, after failing to reach them

A wheelchair-bound woman and her adult son are thought to have been killed by their  STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER  in the city of Hanover, Germany.

The bodies of the 52-year-old woman and her 27-year-old son were discovered by the woman's daughter, who had gone to their flat after failing to reach them.

When she arrived at the flat, she saw her brother's maimed corpse through a window and called police.  Local police said firefighters had to be called to catch the dog - a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross - before they were able to enter the flat.
  
A police spokesman said: 'According to preliminary investigations by a forensic scientist, the 52-year-old and her 27-year-old son were apparently killed by the dog.'

An investigator added: 'Currently, it's not certain how the incident could have come about.'   Local residents said the mother was a wheelchair user.
The public prosecutor's office has ordered autopsies of the unnamed victims.

Chief prosecutor Thomas Klinge said : 'At this time, it looks as if this tragedy came about from dog bites.'

Regarding the question of whether the dog would be put down, a spokesman for city authorities said: 'The investigation is ongoing.' 
Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are classified as fighting breeds by many authorities and are part of the 'pit bull' group of breeds.

In Lower Saxony, dog owners need a certain dog handler's licence to acquire a new animal, a measure introduced to reduce attacks by pit bull-type animals.  Before getting a dog, owners must first pass a theoretical exam and then a practical test during the first year of the ownership.

Killing multiple family members is normal dog behavior. Chihuahuas do it all the time. In fact, chihuahuas bite way more often than pit bulls! Pit bulls get a Bad Rap!

Anon 9:20, get educated! Chihuahuas were once known as fanny dogs! They only bite little children on the fannies because they can't reach adults' butts. Biting butts is the way Chihuahuas show their love! It's like kissing to them!

It is hard to fathom a family dog actually killing TWO of its owners! An able bodied human has a hard time controlling pit bulls, what was this wheelchair bound woman doing with one?

WAS IT HER SERVICE DOG? DID SHE HAVE A HEART ATTACK OR SEIZURE AND THE SERVICE DOG WAS TRYING TO REVIVE HER? DID HER SON HAVE A HEART ATTACK AND SEIZURE TOO?

Why is it so hard for nutters to understand that pit bulls were genetically designed to kill other living beings?

Even with the testing and licensing requirements these two became the victims of their own ugly mutant. BSL looks better every day.
