Medical Efforts Underway to Save Arm of Victim in Perth Dog Attack

by Lisa

PERTH, Australia – In a horrifying incident in Perth’s southern suburbs, a West Australian woman, Nikita Piil, aged 31, is fighting for her arm’s survival after a brutal attack by her own two pet Rottweilers, Bronx and Harlem, on Saturday.

The attack, which occurred around 4:30 pm at her residence in Success, left Ms. Piil with severe bite wounds to her limbs and significant blood loss. She has since been admitted to Royal Perth Hospital, where she remains in serious but stable condition. Over the coming days, doctors will perform multiple surgeries in a bid to salvage her arm.


Bryn Spencer, a neighbor, described the horrifying incident, stating, “I didn’t have a knife; I didn’t have anything really good to take this dog out. I only had a bat. All I could really do was just watch this girl get mauled apart.”


Distressed neighbors took swift action, using leaf blowers, hoses, and bats in an attempt to fend off the attacking Rottweilers. The graphic nature of the incident is captured in footage recorded at 4:45 pm on Saturday, just as the police arrived at the scene.


Police officers attempted to use a Taser to subdue the dogs, but their efforts were in vain as the dogs remained “extremely aggressive,” and Ms. Piil’s life was still in peril. Consequently, an officer resorted to using their firearm to halt the attack.


The motive behind the attack remains unclear, as neighbors reported not witnessing any specific trigger. However, this incident has ignited calls for greater restrictions on Rottweilers.

As of now, Western Australia has regulations restricting four breeds: Argentinian and Brazilian fighting Dogs, the Japanese Tosa, Pit bull terrier breeds, and the Presa Canario. The harrowing incident has reignited the ongoing debate about the safety and ownership of certain dog breeds, as authorities and the community grapple with how to prevent such tragic events in the future.
