In a shocking twist of things, a 3-year-old boy enjoying a fun playtime with their family dog was suddenly attacked by the animal. Marco Slabbert, the young boy, was outside their house and playing in the garden with their Rottweiler when it jumped on him and bit him on his arms and legs.

The horrific incident happened in South Africa and was captured via CCTV.

Fortunately, a woman ran and drove the pooch away from the child.


The toddler was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital. He suffered head and hand injuries. Eventually, he was discharged the next day.

Marco has since made a full recovery but in a Daily Mail report, Francois, Marco’s father, said he shot the dog as a result of his actions.

He explained:

“Nobody knows if the Rottweiler would have attacked someone again. When a dog has attacked someone the chances are good that he will do it again.”

The father, however, has sparked online criticism for killing the animal with some saying he should’ve sought the help of an animal welfare organization instead of taking matters into his own hands.

Francois defended that his actions were not fueled by anger or revenge but by his desire to protect people.
