Wild dogs killed four in Mexico City in what is being described as "one of the most gruesome attacks in the area's history." The deaths took place over a two-week period, and authorities are investigating the tragic incidents, according to a shocking Jan. 8, 2013 report by The Daily Mail.
Two of the victims were a mother and her one-year-old child whose bodies were partially eaten; Shunashi Mendoza, 26, was found without an arm. Another victim was a young woman, Alejandra Ruiz, who phoned her sister during the brutal attack. Ruiz, 15, and her boyfriend Samuel Martinez, 16 were both killed in the same location as Mendoza and her baby, a park in Mexico City called Cerro de la Estrella. The last bodies to be discovered were the two teens, who were found on Friday.
Mexico City prosecutors claim that at least 10 wild dogs were involved in the killing of four people. However, some people, including the family of the victims, are having trouble believing that the four deaths were caused by a pack of dogs. "What kind of dog can tear the skin from your whole arm and leave just bone and if it was an attack dog why didn't it attack her neck?" Ruiz's sister asked, according to The Huffington Post. "What's most shocking is that one of her breasts was mutilated."
Antemio Maya, president of the Street Dog Protection association in Mexico City, also denies that the deaths were the result of roaming street dogs.
