The news just broke that, over the course of the past two weeks, several wild dogs inhabiting the regions close to Mexico City went haywire and started attacking people.

Information made available to the general public thus far says that these wild animals are known to have made four victims, whose bodies were found in a park located on the outskirts of said urban area.

After inspecting these bodies, specialists reached the conclusion that, all things considered, the pack of wild dogs that attacked and killed these people must have been made up of at least ten individuals.

According to Anchorage Daily News, one official statement made by prosecutors in Mexico City with respect to these incidents read as follows: “Experts have established that due to the gravity of the wounds, at least 10 dogs were involved in each attack.”

Two of the victims of these attacks were a 26-year-old woman, Shunashi Mendoza, and a 1-year-old boy, whose bodies were found on December 29. Both the woman and the infant died as a result of their losing too much blood after having been bitten.

The death of the other two victims, a teenage girl, Alejandra Ruiz, and her boyfriend, Samuel Martinez, was also caused by massive bleeding.

To make matters even worse, this 15-year-old girl managed to call her sister while being attacked and pleaded for help, yet her sister assumed that she was merely joking.

“What kind of dog can tear the skin from your whole arm and leave just bone and if it was an attack dog why didn't it attack her neck? What's most shocking is that one of her breasts was mutilated,” Alejandra's sister later told members of the press.

Following these killings, local authorities set out to find and catch the wild dogs living in the park where these attacks occurred. Up until now, they managed to catch a total of 25 dogs, some of which were puppies.
