Manila:

A half-breed German Shepherd killed a nine-year old girl in the southern Philippines, a radio report said.

Marian Gonzales, 9, was with three other companions when attacked by the dog in Pasonanca Village, Zamboanga City on Monday. Her friends managed to run away, but she fell into a canal, giving the dog a chance to bite her on the face, her mother Mardelyn Gonzales said in a radio interview.

The dog owner, Jun Julian, is Pasonanca’s village chairman.

He vowed to extend financial assistance to Gonzales’ surviving family members.
