The family’s young Boston terrier, Killer, was killed last Wednesday (7 August). Two pit bulls came to the garden gate of the Vermeulen family, tore a hole in the gate and then dragged the Boston terrier through the hole.
Attempts from an elderly family member to try and safe the dog was fruitless and the pit bulls, according to this eyewitness, mercilessly attack the smaller dog until it finally could not fight back anymore. Killer died on the sidewalk in front of the house where he was a treasured, beloved member of the family. To read the full story, see this week’s Rustenburg Herald.
