The dog attacked the police when they tried to administer CPR to the woman, authorities further detailed. Due to severe injuries, woman died at the scene. A man has also shifted to hospital with a bite to his leg, police reported.
This incident has prompted pleas locally to re-examine rules on pets. Authorities also reported that the dog had attacked on woman before.
Police Supt Tony Crocker said, “This is a very tragic event for the family and our thoughts go out to them. What a horrific incident.”
He further said, a male directed police in the backyard,
“A dog was also inside. While CPR was being performed on the female victim, the dog moved to attack the police officers, and in order to protect themselves there was a necessity to discharge the fire round.”
Last year, there had 389 reported of dog attacks in the city, the Canberra Times wrote. Lawmakers expected to debate introducing new regulation, for instance stricter penalties for owners in the coming weeks.
