She was coming home from work around 07:00 when she was literally ripped apart.

The woman was afraid and had more than one encounter with the animals.

An arrest has been made in the case. 

"I understand people's anger, I am also angry and saddened by what happened.

We, the mayors of the settlements, do not have the authority to deal with this problem.

In the coming days, I will initiate a meeting with the mayor of the municipality, and if necessary, with ministries, with environmental protection organizations, so that the problem can be solved radically", commented the mayor of Dolna Oryahovitsa, Yordan Baichev.

The mayor pointed out that he has received reports that dogs are walking the streets that are not being bred properly.

"I have made sharp remarks to the owners, after which the animals are taken away.

I haven't seen them during inspections, but then they apparently dropped them again.

We only have this tool - to make remarks", he added.

People in Dolna Oryahovitsa live in fear and terror of the killer dogs, they also share about other attacks

Baichev commented that he had not received an official report about the dogs that killed the woman.

"But people have shared with me.

I have come and warned the owner, who is not there at the moment, and another person lived in the house.

It was he who was detained", the mayor added.

He added that the dead woman did not file an official complaint, but told him about a problem with the animals.

The mayor indicated that they will try to help the victim's family.
