Girl mauled to death by dogs on the way to school in China


A nine-year-old girl was mauled to death by two shepherd dogs on her way to school in northern China last week, according to Chinese news reports.

The girl, identified only as Ling Ling, was attacked while walking alone on a small rural path between a cornfield and woodland in Quyang county, Hebei province, last Thursday, Shanghai-based news site Thepaper.cn reported on Tuesday.

She cried out as the dogs lunged for her neck and passing pupils ran to the school for help.

Ling Ling's older sister came running and tried to drive the dogs off with rocks but failed and went home to get their parents.

The parents drove the animals away but the girl later died of her wounds in hospital.

"Both dogs were big. They jumped on and bit the girl's neck. Her neck was almost severed and her head had wounds, too," the newspaper quoted a villager as saying. "It's so horrific."

Another villager said one of the dogs dragged Ling Ling about 50 metres (54 yards) during the attack.

The dogs belonged to a villager who said he was not aware his two pets had escaped the home, the newspaper report said.

County police captured the dogs and have launched a criminal investigation.

There has been a string of media reports about attacks by unleashed or unmuzzled dogs in China in recent years.

In July, an unmuzzled dog attacked a Japanese woman on the arm in a Shanghai street, inflicting a 10cm (4 inch) wound on her arm.
