Miami Dade, Fl - On August 30th 2006, South Florida reported it's second fatal dog attack just a few weeks apart. 56-year-old Pablo Rudolfo Fleites was found dead in the pen of a 5-year-old male boxer. The dog had the man's blood all over its body when police found the victim. The incident happened in Southwest Miami-Dade. Animal services euthanized the dog after the attack.
Police tried to learn what may have provoked the attack and why Fleites was in the dog's pen. Fleites lived on a shed on the property, which is a three-acre farm. A second dog, a 6-month-old female boxer, also was in the pen but was not believed to have been involved in the attack. Officers did not take the female dog away. Earlier in the month, a woman was killed while trying to bath her dog, a 120lb presa canario.
