MOSCOW, October 28 /TASS/. Russian State Duma Deputy Alexei Pushkov suggested putting owners of fighting dogs to trial for murder after two pitbulls had bitten a 2-year-old boy to death in the Stavropol territory in southern Russia.
"Again! Pitbulls killed a 2-year-old boy in the Stavropol territory. This will continue so long as we do not start trying the owners of such dogs for murder," Pushkov who heads the Russian State Duma Committee for Foreign Affairs wrote in Twitter on Tuesday.
Two pitbull terriers bit a 2-year-old boy to death in Orekhovka village in the Stavropol territory on Tuesday. According to investigators, the boy’s mother went away to pick up the elder daughter from school while the boy was asleep. The boy woke up in his mother’s absence and went out in the yard where the two pitbulls attacked him. When the woman returned home, she found her son lying outdoors dead.
After this tragedy, Russian Human Rights Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov demanded that licenses be issued to keeping fighting dogs only to owners who have undergone special courses. He also called on police inspectors to register such dogs.
