The now viral incident was caught on security camera, where Kristina was seen walking alone in a residential neighbourhood located in Taman Tanjung Minyak Perdana, Melaka, when the pet pitbull of a homeowner dashed out from their ajar gate before attacking her. Despite the fact that the incident was witnessed by a passing car, nobody came to Kristina’s aid until another resident from the same neighbourhood used their car to block the dog from her, allowing her to escape.
According to China Press, the owner of the pitbull has since been identified and is currently facing charges under Section 289 of the Malaysian Penal Code, which may land them with a maximum prison sentence of six months, a fine of no more than RM2,000, or both, for negligence with respect to an animal under their care resulting in the injury of others.
Their pitbull has also been seized by the authorities and put into isolation for two weeks to check if it exhibited any symptoms of rabies.
Kristina is said to be currently receiving treatment in Hospital Besar Melaka, and has been left traumatised by the incident. Malaysian non-profit organisation Barisan Pembela Haiwan Kebangsaan (BAPAK) and Pertubuhan Pasukan Tindakan Haiwan (AAT) has set up a fund to help with her medical costs. It is likely that Kristina’s arm will never function normally again as a result of the attack.
While dog ownership may be a divisive topic in some Malaysian communities, it should be noted that regardless of opinion, it is absolutely important that pet owners take responsibility for their pets and ensure that they do not pose as a potential threat to others. Not only does this put lives at risk, it also reflects badly on other pet owners who are doing their best to keep their pets and those around them safe.
We hope that Kristina recovers from her injuries soon. For those who are wishing to contribute to her medical costs, you may do so through Pertubuhan Pasukan Tindakan Haiwan (AAT)’s Maybank account (512361504919).
