Rottweilers go on the attack in Costa da Caparica

A 38-year-old man had a lucky escape when two Rottweilers went on the attack on Sunday night in Costa da Caparica.´
The man clambered up an electricity post from which he managed to call the GNR. Even so, it took police agents over three hours to catch the dogs.
One has been taken to the local pound, while the other was herded into an empty house which police believe may belong to the owners.
Both dogs appeared to have come from the house in the Quinta Nova da Silveira area.
Once police got one of the dogs in through the open front door, they shut it and have since been trying to locate the dogs’ owners.
The dog removed to the pound in Almada was only caught after kennel workers managed to sedate it.
