Belgian Malinois attacks, kills 9-year-old girl in Zamboanga City

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Nine-year-old Marianne Gonzales was so engrossed with memorizing the prayer for her first communion as she was walking just outside the house of Geolar Tan inside Summer Hill Subdivision in Barangay (village) Pasonanca here on Monday afternoon that she failed to notice the fast-approaching Belgian Malinois, which had managed to cut loose from its collar.

In seconds, the dog leaped towards her and sank its fangs into the girl’s neck, who barely managed to shout for help.

Two more fatal bites to her face and nape and Marianne was dead.

The attack was witnessed by Marianne’s younger sister, seven-year-old Ellamarie and her cousin, 12-year-old Maricel Pahamutang.

But they could not do anything against the rampaging dog except to run home and told Marianne’s mother, Mardelyn, who was then attending to her youngest child, about it.

“I thought she was only bitten by a dog and we rushed to the area only to find out that my eldest daughter was already lifeless, her neck badly damaged,” Mardelyn said.

Even then, they brought her to the Western Mindanao Medical Center but she had no chances of surviving the dog attack, she said.

Ryan Gonzales, Marianne’s father, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that one of the caretakers saw the attack but instead of helping his daughter, the caretaker dragged her towards the main road and “ran inside the house to get a bigger collar.”

“It was as if they were used to such kind of incident before. They treated my girl like a food left by a dog. They dumped her after she was bitten. They didn’t do anything to stop the dog,” he claimed.

In an interview with the Inquirer, Efigenio Julian Jr., Pasonanca barangay chair, called Tan’s dog a “killer dog.”

“I spent my life as an investigator and the way the dog bit the girl, I am sure it’s a killer dog, a dog trained to kill,” Julian said.

He said that the girl’s family resided outside the subdivision but he took the route by Tan’s home as a shortcut.

Ryan confirmed Julian’s story and added that school children like her daughter were used to passing by Tan’s house and it was the first time that the dog attacked a human.

Senior Supt. Edwin de Ocampo, city police director, said Tan and the dog’s handler were being investigated.

The police have taken custody of the dog.

“They could be held liable for reckless imprudence resulting in homicide,” De Ocampo said, when asked what case to file against the owner and the handler.

Local veterinarian Dr. Anton Lim said he was the one looking after the dog’s health and was surprised to know it attacked a human.

“That Belgian Malinois is a working canine and this dog was very calm. I am just wondering what had happened prior to the incident,” Lim said.

Lim said he wanted to know what transpired before the attack so he could provide an opinion on why the dog attacked a human.

    doc–madalas kasi ang belgian pag inaasar ng mga bata—doon sila mainit.

    kahit sinong bata yan —pag nag harutan o tignan lang sya —delikado.

    alam mo naman ang  nature ng belgian –working dog nga yan–at lalo kapag hindi trained—– agresibo.—lagi sa leeg, ulo at dibdib ang target nya.

    • Marx Louis Wang

      Para mo na ring sinabi may isip-tao ang halimaw na asong ito! Para sa iyo katimbang ng aso ang tao? Ganun ba? SAGOT!!!!

      • Mamang Pulis

        nature ng aso yun—ang handler ang nagpabaya–ungas.

      • Anne Estrada

        base on your comment mas halimaw ka pa sa asong tinitukoy mo. e nasa owner naman talaga ang problema kung pano niya i.train at alagaan ang aso. bobo

    dapat si prez gung gong akin’o eh mag “launch ng probe”, di ba?

    • rjimenez1226

      Dapat ikaw na lang nilapa ng aso. Masaya pa ang mundo.

      • bogli_anakdami

        sarap na kalderata yan, di ba?

  • jga94

    I saw this on TV…the handler of the dog was even a minor. The dog was probably trained as an attack dog and the owner let a minor handle the dog….the owner is liable for reckless imprudence resulting in homicide…the dog should be confiscated and see if he can be rehabilitated or if he is an attack dog then a professional should be the only ones who can handle the dog…

    Meanwhile, such a sad, sad incident….my heart goes out to the family….and all because of irresponsible pet owners….

    • Mamang Pulis

      yun nga—malaki ang reponsibilidad ng handler / owner dito—

    • ang_dagat

      A Belgian Sheppard (Malinous) can indeed be trained to attack. They are sometimes trained by Police forces as an attack dog.

  • regie

    hoy dr.  kahit na ano pang psychology pa ang gawin mo dyan ang belgian malinois ay isang workoing dog at yan ay me tendency na pumatay kaya kung nagalaga ka niyan at nakapatay ay sagutin mo no ifs no buts. SA national discovery nga ay ginagamit yan laban sa mga hostage terrorist. hindi aksidente yun dahil wala silang foresight na yung asong iyon ay makakamatay at dapat ay naka restrain mabuti yon…kung naputol ang leash niya ay kasalanan nila yun at di sila bumili ng leash na nararapat sa belgian malinois. tama recklsess imprudence resulting into homicide dahil sa lack of foresight.

  • rightist

    The dog is evidence so it must be kept alive until such time as the case is closed then it should be euthanized. The owner should be charged with homicide (reckless imprudence). The only mitigating circumstance for the owner is if the dog has attacked a trespasser inside the owner’s house.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NXSMYDNWGVXJTSB7EDEJTLT75M CIACo.

    if the gun ban would push through, expect more rich chinese acquiring and training dogs to attack and kill at the slightest hint of a provocation.

    • Mamang Pulis

      halos lahat mg K9 unit ngayun dito belgian malinois ang breed.–karamihan naman mga balanse.

      ang handler ang nagpabaya dito lalo na kung hindi trained ang aso—agresibo mga yan belgian.

  • Marx Louis Wang

    WTF!!! The girl’s life is more important than the f–king dog!! Holy cow!!! there is no argument here. It is the responsibility of the owner to watch for their stupid dog at all times. The owner could be imprisoned for negligence and pay for the funeral expenses of the victim.

    • bogli_anakdami

      yung mga pinatay ni ampatuans jan eh walang kaso, yan pa kaya…

      • Mamang Pulis

        ano koneksyun nila ampatuan dito?  

    • Mamang Pulis

      uy concerned citizen sya kunyari—–mas istupido pa ang sagot mo kaysa sa aso na tinutukoy mo—dapat ikaw na lang nilapa sa leeg gag0!

    Since you can’t penalize the dog (he’s brain is small enough to understand the gravity and feel remorse of his offense!), then you have to sue and penalize the owner, TAN! Carnivorous kase ang aso nila, baka hindi yon pinakain kaya nilapa ang kawawang bata!

  • stealth ice

    the dog handler/owner should be held liable for the death of the girl.
    but the problem is it will take century to for the PNP to investigate the case and another century for the prosecutors to file the case and another century for the judge to render the verdict. the dog handler/owner is a chinoy isn’t it? for sure money works.

    By the way what happened now to the investigation of the PNP with regards to the illegal explosives kept in the warehaouse of the chinoy’s hardware which went off two years ago also in zamboanga city. It’s forgotten case already. for sure money changed hands.

    It seems PNP’s investigations is only formality. after that they will just wait for the issues to die down. another unsolved case.

    CITY IN 2020 SPECIAL REPORT: WHY DESPITE NINE (9) CHILD RAPE COMPLAINTS
    AGAINST PASONANCA BARANGAY CAPTAIN JUN JULIAN—THE WELL-KNOWN SERIAL
    CHILD RAPIST REMAINS FREE! Pasonanca barangay captain and
    well-known child molester/rapist JUN JULIAN has escaped arrest and
    prosecution despite nine (9) child rape complaints by pre-school girls
    against him. The reason: JUN JULIAN has three very powerful backers,
    namely: (1) hid brother-in-law, the corrupt city chief of police, Col.
    EDWIN DE OCAMPO; (2) Mayor CELSO LOBREGAT [Julian is the mayor’s
    bagman/collector]; and (3) Congresswoman BENG CLIMACO-SALAZAR.
    On Monday, January 28, MARIAN GONZALES, a 9-year old girl, was allegedly
    mauled to death by Jun Julian’s golder retriever/labrador mix dog.
    Golden Retrievers and Labradors are not known to attack humans. In fact,
    these two breed of dogs are usually “child-friendly.” And video of
    Julian’s dog in the news did not show any “bloodstains” around the dog’s mouth, face and neck. [watch the video].
    ZCin2020 demands an “AUTOPSY” to find our if 9-year old victim MARIAN
    GONZALES was raped—and/or the CAUSE OF HER DEATH. The coincidence and
    the fact that Jun Julian had already raped nine pre-school girls at his
    house and resthouse in Upper Pasonanca in Zamboanga City—makes it
    almost very likely that serial child rapist Jun Julian raped, then
    killed 9-year old MARIAN GONZALES. WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR ALL THE RAPE
    VICTIMS OF JUN JULIAN! GOD HELP US!

    • Mamang Pulis

      thanks john–baka nakoryente lang si julie

    • ang_dagat

      You are right in saying these two breeds (Labrador Retriever & Golden Retriever) being usually child friendly. They were bred for retrieving fowl after the invention of the gun. They have what is called a ‘soft bite’ so as not to damage the (Pheasant etc) they are retrieving. We had a Golden Retriever who has just died recently and he was loved by all our friends and their kids. The only crime he could be accused of is licking people.

      I am 99% sure that this child was not killed by this mix. Other reports are stating that it was a Belgian Sheppard (Malinois) could be dangerous if not given proper exercise and attention. The could also be trained to attack which one could not achieve with a Golden Retriever.

      Regarding your allegations against this individual. We have read them, taken them seriously, and have not written them off. But by continuously posting the same accusations in block capitals on several posts will not do your cause for justice for this young girl any good. To most people this is akin to shouting.

    I remember a Jerry Springer show which featured a man who’s dog savagely attacked his 3 year old daughter and permanently left the daughter’s face deformed.

    Meet Rojan Miko a Belgian Malinois Shepherd Dog. Miko’s birthday is January 12, 2012. He weighs 24 kilos and 32-36 inches and no record of aggressive behavior since birth. He is a sociable canine contrary to what earlier been reported. He is a calm well trained canine and the attack to the girl raises so many questions. Miko is still in detention and worst he is placed inside a carrier kernel that only used to ship animal on a short period like one or two hours. Miko is there for 30 hours or more. We know he has bitten Marianne Gonzales to death and we condole the family.  Dr. Anton Lim is the vet of Geolay Tan for Miko this Belgian Shepherd Dog.
    Mamang Pulis this was my previous post at my facebook. I invite you to browse my page there.Miko is now turned over to the City Pound Center under Dr. M. Ariola. Tan is working out some papers to secure his Belgian Malinois Shepherd Dog. Any information provided by some comments here, not true. I still believe the SOCO, investigators and the owner of the dog Geolay Tan and his vet Dr. Anton Lim.Thanks for the criticisms anyway especially for others who donot know me that well.

  • stealth ice

    whether the dogs are trained or not they are still a dog. they still have this KILLER INSTINCT.
    for those who said that this dog is tamed, sociable, and no aggressive behavior then by all means save the dog and eutanize the owner/handler together with the veterinarian for they are not capable of handling it.

    L.A. ZAMBOANGA TIMES SPECIAL REPORT
    02/01/2013…….[JUST IN]…..5:25PM……BREAKING NEWS!!!! BREAKING NEWS!!!!!

    Marianne Gonzales, the 9-year old girl killed in a vicious attack by a dog at around 4:30pm last Monday, January 28 at the Summer Hill Subdivision in Pasonanca—-was a “witness” in one of the nine (9) rapes committed by Pasonanca barangay captain JUN JULIAN.

    ZCin2020 sources in Pasonanca identified the rape victims as “Gik-Gik,” a 9-year old, who has since been under the custody of the VISAYAN FORUM in Davao City. Gik-Gik was the last—and 9th—rape victim of JUN JULIAN based on reports we received here at ZCin2020 six months after we launched the ZCin2020 crusade on Facebook.

    “Jun Julian knew the route Marianne and her classmates would take from school on their way home to Cabatangan,” the source told ZCin2020.

    Anton Lim, a local vet who claims to be looking after the health of the dog said: “That Belgian Malinois is a working canine and this dog was very calm. I am just wondering what had happened prior to the incident.”

    Gik-Gik’s father, our sources said, works at a vulcanizing shop in the area. Gik-Gik’s parents did not file rape charges again Julian after they allegedly settled amicably with the well-known pedophile.

    Marianne and Gik-Gik were reportedly classmates at the Pasonanca Elementary School.

    STAY TUNED AS THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY…..
    ======

  • http://LAZamboangaTimes.com John Shinn III

    02/03/2013…….[NEWS MEDIA CORRUPTION WATCH]…..The first report ever filed on the dog mauling of 9-year old Marianne Gonzales last January 28 at the Summer Hill Subdivision in Pasonanca, Zamboanga City was made by ABS-CBN. In their TV and article, ABS-CBN identified the owner of the killer dog as Pasonanca barangay captain JUN JULIAN [see ABS-CBN report]

    FAST FORWARD 9 HOURS AFTER THE ABS-CBN REPORT CAME OUT—ARTICLE FILED BY JULIE ALIPALA OF THE INQUIRER. The Inquirer’s Zamboanga City correspondent JULIA ALIPALA—in an attempt to cover up JUN JULIAN’s involvement in the case—filed a report identifying a certain GOELAR TAN as the owner of the dog…described as a “Belgian Malinois.” JUN JULIAN was no longer described as the “owner” of the killer dog. [see INQUIRER article]

    THE NEXT DAY IN ZAMBOANGA TODAY. The usually unreliable and questionable Zamboanga Today reported the incident, but completely omitted JUN JULIAN’s name in their report. The local paper then identified the dog as a “DOBERMAN.” A check on their website today [02/03/2012] revealed that the word “DOBERMAN” was deleted. [see ZAMBOANGA TODAY article]

    WHAT ZCin2020 KNOWS. Reports we have received from ZCin2020 sources in Pasonanca said that the dog mauling victim, 9-year old Marianne Gonzales, was a “key witness” in the rape of her classmate named “Gik-Gik” by Pasonanca barangay captain JUN JULIAN, identified by the first report [by ABS-CBN] as the owner of the dog that killed Gonzales. [see photo of Gik-Gik being interviewed by a member of the Visayan Forum]

    So far, as of this posting, ABS-CBN rep told ZCin2020 that they are sticking with their story—meaning JUN JULIAN was, indeed, the owner of the killer dog. “We are sticking by our reporter’s story on the incident,” the ABS-CBN rep told ZCin2020 in a e-mail.

    WELL FOLKS…THERE YOU HAVE IT….THIS IS A CLOSEST WE CAN GET TO THE TRUTH AT THIS POINT OF OUR INVESTIGATION ON THE KILLING OF JUN JULIAN RAPE “WITNESS” MARIANNE GONZALES….
