Bloemfontein - A Boerboel probably saved the life of a 12-year-old boy when it jumped over a fence and attacked a bullterrier that was busy mauling the child, before dragging the dog away.

The boy, Kgotso Seahloli, was transferred to a hospital in Bloemfontein where he had surgery on Tuesday night. A large part of his scalp had completely been torn off, his skull had been pierced and he had bite wounds to his cheeks, upper lip and stomach.

Seahloli, a Grade 6 pupil at Harmony Primary School in Virginia, was on his way home from school in Windsor Road in Harmony when the bullterrier came out of its yard and attacked him.

His father, Moses Seahloli, said the incident happened close to the school and teachers who were called by pupils found Kgotso after the dogs had gone.

“My child is in a lot of pain and badly shocked. He said he thought he was going to get bitten to death. His condition is serious. I am told the other dog saved my child’s life.”

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Malebo Khosana said the bullterrier was attacked by the boerbull, which jumped over a high fence, when the child screamed. He said the attack on the child happened very close to the home of the bullterrier’s owners.

He said a charge of keeping a dangerous dog was being investigated against the owners.

The dog was signed over to the SPCA and would be put down.
