Two killer dogs which mauled to death a well known and respected businessman, 52, had attacked a woman just weeks before after being allowed 'to run free' by their owner to 'terrorise the neighbourhood,' a resident has revealed.
Ian Price, from Stonnall, Staffordshire, was attacked and killed by the two dogs which jumped out of a neighbour's window yards from a primary school. He reportedly died defending his elderly mother from the animals.
The dogs bit him and ripped the clothes from his body leaving him dying in a pool of blood in his boxer shorts in yesterday afternoon's horror attack just feet from his home.
Witnesses said the dogs entered Mr Price's mother's garden through a hedge before 'setting' on him in an attack said to have lasted up to 20 minutes.
This week, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced that XL Bully dogs would be banned before the end of the year - two days after a ten-year-old boy was mauled by an out-of-control animal as he played football.
In a video announcement posted to his X account, Mr. Sunak said the breed would be banned following a 'pattern of behavior [that] cannot go on'.
