One owner had fought with the dog and tried to hold him, but managed to pull out when the police arrived. We took the dog and were forced to shoot immediately. The dog showed clear signs and tendencies that it was not healthy, says Mikael Pettersson, an RLC officer in the Stockholm region police.
What caused the attack or what was for the breed in the dog is not clear.
The owners were allowed to go to hospitals with extensive injuries to the forearms and hands, however serious it may be.
"It's quite unusual for that to happen, fortunately. I have not been involved in many cases during my 30 years in the police. It's terrible for everyone involved, says Mikael Pettersson.
Police will not initiate any preliminary investigations.
