After his family dog became mad and began biting him, his wife, and his kid at their Baldivis home on Sunday night, a man yelled at authorities, “Just shoot it!”
Stephen and Michelle Quail stated their three-year-old rescue blue heeler, named Ace, started attacking the family of three, resulting in what they characterized as a “bloodbath,” leaving them “traumatized,” with Mr Quail’s injuries being so severe that he now needs surgery.
Ace, a rescue dog with a “traumatic past,” started attacking Mr Quail at random and lunging for his throat at 6.40 p.m. Ace had just returned from having his castrated.
The family, who have had Ace for approximately a month, claims that Mr Quail would have perished from the attack if it weren’t for the cone the Blue Heeler was sporting.
The 50-year-old father claimed that “(Ace) opened me up under my chin during the vicious attack.” His head, chin, and arm are all bandaged.
Their 18-year-old daughter fled the horrifying incident by hiding herself in an adjacent room after being bitten on the arm.
Soon after, someone phoned the police at the Vernon Gough Drive location.
It took “all my power,” Mrs Quail cried, “to get Ace off my husband.”
The three-year-old dog eventually turned around and attacked her by grabbing hold of her calf.
Ace was shot twice and then a third time to “euthanize the dog,” according to the police, who confirmed the occurrence at the residence.
According to a statement, “because to the dog’s extremely violent character, a police pistol was used twice to end the attack.”
“A third shot was fired to euthanize the dog and stop it from suffering any further due to the injuries the dog received.”
