Wild dogs kill 4 in Mexico City park; police trap 25 animals

MEXICO CITY - Wild dogs mauled and killed four people whose bodies were found over the past two weeks in a park on the edge of Mexico City, authorities said Monday. In one case, a teenage girl frantically called her sister with her cellphone to plead for help as the attack took place.

Neighbours of the Cerro de la Estrella, a partly wooded, hilltop park surrounded by the city's poor and populous Iztapalapa district, first found the bodies of a 26-year-old woman and a 1-year-old child in the area on Dec. 29, authorities in Mexico's capital said.

The woman, Shunashi Mendoza, was missing her left arm, and prosecutors said that both she and the boy had bled to death and been partially eaten.

Then on Friday visitors to the same park found the bodies of a teenage couple who had also bled to death.

"Experts have established that due to the gravity of the wounds, at least 10 dogs were involved in each attack," Mexico City prosecutors said in a statement.

In the second attack, Alejandra Ruiz, 15, and her boyfriend Samuel Martinez, 16, had gone to the park Friday afternoon.

The girl called her sister Diana Ruiz at around 7 p.m. pleading for help.

"Several dogs are attacking us, help me!" the girl screamed. The call then stopped.

Ruiz told Milenio Television she thought her sister was joking and still doesn't believe her sister was killed by dogs despite the call.

"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?" Ruiz asked. "What's most shocking is that one of her breasts was mutilated."

She said she later visited the place of the attack and saw no pools of blood. "There needs to be a thorough investigation," she added.

Antemio Maya, president of the Street Dog Protection association in Mexico City, also doubts that dogs could have killed the people found in the park.

"It's not the behaviour of street dogs to kill humans," Maya said.

Maya said authorities should focus on sterilizing pets and educating people about pet ownership instead of spreading the idea of killer animals.

"The authorities trapped beagles, Maltese, poodles; can you imagine how long it would take for them to kill a person?" he asked.

"A lot of people get tired of their dogs and they simply throw them on the streets," he said. "This is going to create a terrible hate for street dogs and that's going to lead to even more abuse."

Mexico City Public Safety Secretary Jesus Rodriguez told Milenio Television that the bodies were not dumped in the area as some had suggested. He said the victims had bite wounds that were inflicted while they were alive and other after they had died.

He warned against visiting the park and said all the dogs in the area will be trapped and checked to see if they were involved.

At least 100 police officers were scouring the park in search of wild dogs. They had trapped 25 by Monday night, including 10 females, eight males and seven puppies. The dogs had been living in caves and crevices in the park, prosecutors said.

Experts are testing the dogs' hair for traces of human blood and will also test their stomach contents. Authorities did not say what they would do with the animals.

Local newspapers published photos of the dogs. Several looked like domestic pets, suggesting the dogs were abandoned animals or their offspring who had formed a pack or packs in the hilltop park.

Iztapalapa is a massive and poor district on the eastern outskirts of Mexico City, and stray dogs roam many of its streets. Hundreds of thousands of spectators gather each Holy week in the Cerro de la Estrella park to watch a reenactment of the mock crucifixion of Christ.

Mexico City's famed Chapultepec Park, in the city's centre, also has feral dogs living in wooded areas and there have been reports of minor attacks on human, but none fatal.

In that case, animal rights activists have urged authorities not to kill the dogs, instead spaying them and either leaving them in the park or finding them homes.

Well,the suffering of strangers doesn't hit home as deeply as those of our friend,Chrissie-Fan,but I'll offer you my theory that they were wolves and not street dogs...possibly some wolf-dog half breeds who had escaped from their previous owner.Street dogs very rarely function well in packs cuz it's the old dog-eat-dog saying: The stronger ones will fight with each other until one can mark its territory.With wolves,pack hunting is much more instinctive...of course,wolves fight with each other for dominance,too,sometimes but they work much,MUCH better in groups than untrained street dogs ever would...plus they are cleverer and it would be harder for the police to catch them and pinpoint which ones did the killing

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Some Danish tabloids attempted to hype up the Caro - Lisicki match before it started, trying to make it sound like the two girls despised each other, even bringing up the infamous (but in my mind irrelevant) bumpgate from 2009. It's a sad case of tabloids trying to sell papers by making a story out of nothing. Caro and Lisicki aren't friends but it certainly hasn't been my impression that they despise each other. "Indifferent" would be a better description for two players who haven't faced off for 3½ years, during which time Lisicki has been out with injuries for long periods.

^ Brilliant

A careful where you click website. If not careful, you'll be drowned by the 1,000 pop-ups torture.

I am using flash blocker on FF, which leaves the ads transparent .. and generally allows for a more pleasant browsing experience.

LShunter has a new app for viewing. It feels more stable, but as it's stand-alone, there is not escaping the regular ads, unless viewed in full screen mode.

What I find amusing is that your picture of pop-up ads had a pop-up ad appear at the bottom (something about whiter teeth).

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Wonder what would happen if you could actually track the origin of unwanted pop-up ads...if there were some widely-dispersed news item where some guy bludgeoned the pop-up sender to death,leaving him in an unrecognizable bloody mess and then glibly declaring that the pop-ups motivated such a brutal murder.......merely wondering,cuz they're really no hassle for me

Funny, after being knocked out of the AO men's doubles, Frederik Nielsen decided to enter mixed doubles and has teamed up with... Sabine Lisicki!

Sometimes a normal guy can see another dude and figure out right away that women are attracted to him.For example,I didn't need any commentators to tell me that Rafa had made a big impression on the gals when he first came on the scene.Nielsen doesn't strike me as THAT type,but maybe I'm wrong;superficially,at least,he seems reasonably handsome.Is he considered a 'hot male tennis player' by Danish women?....I ask that b/c this might be a case where Sabine was letting Nielsen know that she was 'available' as more than just a temporary doubles partner.Given her pathetic lack of commitment and underachieving,it wouldn't surprise me if scoping out ATP guys were one of her top tennis priorities.

On the other hand,Sabine made a doubles final with Stosur at Wimbledon 2011,so maybe she feels that she can get a Slam trophy in mixed doubles without worrying about those 'little annoyances' like staying in peak physical condition or developing a stable mental approach to the sport.........or maybe it's a combination of both motives

From the Caro - Vekic match thread in GM:

I hope Caro can turn it on in the next round because IF she beats Tsurenko, she may very well get bageled by Vika. The disparity between the quality of their games is huge at this point.

Vekic is adorable and I love her game!

That feels a bit odd, there's currently NO matches going on while we're waiting for Kvitova - Robson to start!
