Georges Hall, Sydney: Grim update to suburban row in Sydney’s south-western suburbs after dog savagely attacked a man

A beloved family dog ​​has been put down after it mauled a man and woman in a western Sydney backyard, sparking angry threats caught on camera.

Alex the American Akita – a variation of the Japanese dog originally bred to hunt bears – badly mauled a man’s arm and leg in the attack in Georges Hall last month.

Shocking footage of the aftermath of the attack showed the victim and bystanders exchanging X-rated insults and threats of revenge as the man, 30, was put into an ambulance.

A 58-year-old woman was also bitten on the hand in the attack, but escaped with minor injuries.

Council rangers attended the home of the Ahmadi family, who owned the large husky-type dog, and stunned it with a dart gun the next day.

Members of the family wept as the huge dog – weighing up to 60kg – was taken to a dog pound pending further inquiries by police and the council.

But the council has now confirmed it was put down after the dog was found to pose an uncontrollable danger to neighbours.

“After an extensive investigation, and in consultation with the dog’s owner, it was decided to euthanize the animal,” a council spokesperson told USA Online Post Australia.

“It was very clear the dog could not be rehabilitated or rehomed and was a risk to the community.”

Video revealed how police intervened to separate two screaming groups as medics tried to take the male victim to hospital as he shouted: ‘Watch when I get out…watch!’

“Pull up the jib!”

Neighbors said the large, muscular dog, with a thick woolly coat, was rarely seen outside the house, but they often heard his deep, menacing bark.

‘It came out the front door once and ran away,’ one neighbor told USA Online Post Australia. “I found it quite intimidating when I saw it, but it wasn’t very out.”

The day after the attack on January 18, council rangers armed with a tranquilizer dart gun were led to the home’s backyard where the dog could be heard barking.

Moments later the barking stopped, and the sedated dog was carried out on a stretcher by two men and placed in a trailer to be taken to the council shooter.

The victim of the attack has not been named, but he is believed to have suffered deep bites to his left hand and left leg during the attack.

Humphreys flared between the dog owner’s family and bystanders as medics treated the victim at the bungalow at around 7.45pm before taking him to Liverpool Hospital.

“Stay the fuck away,” one woman in white yelled as another woman ran towards her.

The second woman, who was wearing black, went towards the woman in white until a man grabbed her arm and said: ‘Shut the fuck up. Be quiet!’

A few police officers then got between the two women and separated the groups again.

The woman in black continued to scream: ‘What was he (the dog) doing outside?

“Know your fucking place.”

As the man was taken away by paramedics, he again shouted at the bystanders and pointed his finger at them.

A woman shouted back: ‘Shut up. It’s your fault.’

But he shot back again: ‘Look when I come out, look. You’re a dumb b**ch.’

The next day, one woman, wearing fluffy slippers, sobbed as she said goodbye to the dog as it lay unconscious in the council trailer before it was driven off.

The family in the middle of the row was supported by their neighbor as the drama unfolded. They declined to comment, adding only: ‘It’s too traumatic.’

A family member later told USA Online Post Australia: ‘There is no show. It’s a personal matter.’

Other neighbors said they only saw the fleet of police cars and ambulances rushing to the scene and saw nothing of the dog attack.

“I never even saw the dog,” said one neighbor. ‘I just heard it barking, every day it barked. It sounded like a very large dog.’

The American Akita was bred to hunt bears and has a reputation as a good family dog, but does not get along well with other dogs and is known to be wary and aloof towards strangers.

Another said he saw the explosion between the dog’s owners and the victim’s family but did not know the background to the incident and admitted: ‘It got a bit heated.

‘We are quite private in this street and give each other space. We are all friendly and say hello to each other, but we don’t get involved in each other’s business.’

The council confirmed the male American Akita was microchipped but not registered with them, but there was no record of previous incidents involving it.

The American Akita has a reputation as a good family dog, but does not get along well with other dogs and is known to be wary and aloof towards strangers.

It was originally bred by the Japanese to hunt bears and its powerful jaws are said to be many times stronger than even an American pit bull’s.

The dog thrives in cold conditions, as it has a very thick double coat, and can weigh up to 60 kg.
