Pitbull attack: man loses forearm after trying to steal from farm

A 49-year-old man, suspected of trying to steal from a farm in Uberaba, in Triângulo Mineiro, in the early hours of this Wednesday (21/2), was seriously injured after being attacked by a pitbull dog. He had his forearm amputated.

The person responsible for the farm, according to a report from the Military Police (PM), had difficulty removing the pitbull from the suspect. He then called the PM.

The suspect, according to the PM, who has police records for theft, robbery and threat, suffered lacerations on his shins and ankles, on his left hand, with tendons showing, and minor injuries on his right forearm and right side of his chest.

According to a note from the press office of the Clinical Hospital of the Federal University of Triângulo Mineiro (HC-UFTM), the man was initially admitted to the hospital’s emergency room. “After verifying that the patient had an exposed injury, he took him directly to the surgical center, where he underwent surgery and had his forearm amputated,” the note continues.

According to HC-UFTM, the man is admitted to the hospital’s orthopedic ward for antibiotic maintenance and wound treatment, with no expected hospital discharge.

Second suspect on the run

The person responsible for the farm, the target of the alleged theft attempt, also reported to the Uberaba police that, initially, he saw that the wall’s concertina was damaged. After that, he said that when he opened the gate and entered the place he came across the man lying on the ground. He had several injuries on his left hand and in the shin/ankle region, caused by the dog that guards the place. It was at that moment that he said he had difficulty removing the pitbull from the suspect.
