On August 5, a man in Guangzhou was attacked by a pack of dogs and eventually died on the scene after emergency treatment by medical staff failed to resuscitate him, according to Guangzhou Public Security Bureau.

The victim, identified only by his surname Zhang, was a 65-year-old who worked as an electrician at a local company in Guangzhou’s Baiyun district. 

Zhang was assaulted at approximately 12.50pm by three rottweilers, who were kept by the same company he worked for, as he was exiting the company’s office to a courtyard where the canines were then being fed.

Having heard Zhang’s cry for help, the company’s doorman, who is responsible for the three rottweilers, rushed over to pull the dogs away from the victim, before reporting the incident to the police. 

Zhang was later confirmed dead by medical staff after suffering a hemorrhagic shock. Police have placed the company’s legal representative and the doorman under arrest, and the three canine culprits were quarantined. 

The company’s name has not been revealed by the police, but further investigation is currently underway. 

Rottweilers, known in Germany as ‘butchers’ dogs’ for herding livestock and pulling cartfuls of butchered meat, are regarded as medium-to-large or large. 

In Guangzhou, a total of 36 dog breeds are considered dangerous and banned for sale. Dogs taller than 71 centimeters are also prohibited to be kept as domestic pets.
