SAD NEWS : A Municipality Worker Was Brutally Beaten By Dogs On Duty.

SAD NEWS : A Municipality Worker Was Brutally Beaten By Dogs On Duty. 

He was rushed to a critical condition in the eThekwini Municipality by dogs when he entered a house in Temple Valley, Verulam, to assess the flood damage on Tuesday.

The 44-year-old worker was reportedly helped by neighbors who heard him screaming for help, when he was attacked by four dogs.

Reactions Unit of South Africa (Rusa) spokesman Prem Balram said they had received a number of calls from residents in the area, asking for help after hearing a man scream and cry when he was bitten by dogs.

“Our security guards and paramedics rushed to the scene. When they arrived, they found a man lying on the ground near a building with stab wounds to his body and face. Two dogs were still at the scene and residents said they were part of the four bites, ”said Balram.

He said members of the public, who were at the scene, said the dogs were not from the village where the victim was injured although they were often seen there. He said the victim was given emergency medical treatment at the scene before being taken to hospital.

A spokesman for the municipality, Msawakhe Mayisela, urged the dog-breeding community to make sure they kept them locked so that workers could not find themselves injured on the job.

“This is not the first time this has happened. It is unfortunate that the staff of the community service staff are so injured that the dog owners are making sure that the fence is kept, the dogs are locked up, ”said Mayisela.

He said no one in the area admitted that he knew the dogs, and urged members of the public to report stray dogs without the owners having to collect them and lock them up.
