A very sad end to the story. You've been warned.

Dog that mauled owner to death had 'probably taken crack cocaine'

Mario Perivoitos died at his north London home after being attacked by Staffordshire bull terrier in front of BBC film crew

A Staffordshire bull terrier that killed its owner by crushing his larynx in its jaws in front of a BBC documentary crew had probably taken crack cocaine, an inquest has heard.

The dog’s owner, Mario Perivoitos, died at his home in Wood Green, north London, in an incident in March that was seen but not filmed by BBC journalists making a programme about drugs.

An inquest at North London coroner’s court heard that the behaviour of the dog, called Major, could have been triggered by crack cocaine.

Nicholas Carmichael, a veterinary toxicologist, told the inquest that samples indicating high levels of cocaine and morphine were discovered in the dog’s urine.

Mail Online quoted Carmichael as saying: “It is very likely that this dog had consumed drugs, probably eaten them. It is almost impossible to say whether that will make the dog attack, but it does make them respond abnormally.

“They become very excited and agitated. It is more likely that this attack happened because this dog had taken cocaine.”

Julie Higgins, a pathologist, told the court that Perivoitos’s body “included injuries to the neck and face, with extensive haemorrhaging, and the larynx was crushed”.

The BBC crew were at his home filming Drugs Map of Britain when he began having a seizure.

The programme’s producer, Joshua Haddow, managed to wrestle Major off his owner, but it was too late to save him, the court heard. During the attack, Major crushed Mario’s larynx and caused him to lose so much blood he was given ten pints to try and revive him later in hospital, the court heard.

The senior coroner, Andrew Walker, concluded that Perivoitos died as a consequence of injuries received from the dog. He pointed out that the victim had taken cocaine before the attack.

“It is likely that he was experiencing an epileptic shock, which caused the dog to nip his face before biting his neck. The film crew telephoned an ambulance while attempting to get the dog off Mr Perivoitos,” he said.

“It is likely that the dog had consumed cocaine by eating it and it is likely that this was an additional factor in the dog’s behaviour. Mr Perivoitos suffered serious injuries and was taken to a major trauma hospital, and died shortly after midnight.”

Walker thanked the BBC crew for their attempts to save Perivoitos. Police told the inquest that Major is to be put down.

Why does the dog have to be put down? Can't they just send him to rehab?

Christ :slol:

Terrible story for all involved though. banana split owner shouldn't have A) had crack cocaine in the first place, and B) left it where his strawberry floating dog could eat it. Now two lives are needlessly lost.

To be honest the dogs brain is probably strawberry floated up from cocaine.

Absolutely horrible thing to happen especially to the dog. My mums lodger has a rescue staffie who was forcibly used to breed fighting dogs. She's an absolutely lovely dog who is like a big cuddly cow. She whines sometimes because she gets afraid if she's not near her owner and needs a lot of petting. Just goes to show again how important treatment of dogs is.
