A Jack Russell was bitten by two dogs twice its size one evening when a family’s domestic worker, 41 year-old Jothilakshmi Mohan Kumar was taking it out on a walk
The attack happened so swiftly and silently that foreign domestic worker Jothilakshmi Mohan Kumar only found out when she looked back to check on Ranee the Jack Russell.
It took eight people to separate the Jack Russell from the two big dogs, which are of mixed breeds and whose owners live in the neighbourhood.
The big dogs were unleashed and had apparently escaped due to their owners’ broken gate.
The attack left Ranee with punctured wounds on the intestines, five days after the attack, she died.
Ranee’s owners are concerned that these mongrels may pose a safety issue in the neighbourhood.
“Ranee was very dear to us. What’s going to happen if it was a baby or the elderly? They won’t be able to survive the bite,” said Madam Gloria Koh.
