Through the "Barbos" organisation, the inspectors found a veterinarian to provide qualified health care.
The dog and the owner were taken to the veterinary clinic, and the investigators were called at the scene. They will find out the circumstances of the case.
One of the residents of the neighbourhood said that the owner of the pitbull often lets the dog walk without supervision, which is what happened that time. They say that the pitbull was either barking at or trying to attack another dog that was being walked by a man. Then, the man just took out a knife and stabbed the pitbull. Now law enforcers have to find out why the fighting dog was walking by itself and why another dog owner was walking around the neighbourhood with a knife.
According to the latest, unofficial, information, the pitbull was saved.
