Italian earthquake’s hero rescue dog Kaos fatally poisoned

Italian earthquake’s hero rescue dog Kaos fatally poisoned

The heaviest loss of life occurred in the town during the magnitude-6.2 natural disaster, which struck in the early hours of 24 August 2016.

The three-year-old dog had also assisted rescuers in the aftermath of another quake in Norcia in October 2016.

He added: 'I have no words.

Now, his owner, Fabiano Ettore, is alleging that the beloved dog was poisoned and killed by an unnamed suspect. "I can't understand such a terrible act".

Lawmaker Michela Brambilla told AP on Monday she hoped Kaos's death would hasten passage of a law she proposed earlier this year. "He was alive until at least two o'clock, I heard him barking", said he.

He said: "Keep up your work up there, keep looking for the missing, and saving lives". A 2014 study by Italian researchers examined diagnostic data of 870 dogs in Rome and found that poisoning was the second-most-common cause of death for dogs, with more than 17 percent of them dying from consuming toxic materials.

In a heartfelt message which has been shared more than 67,000 times on Facebook, Ettore said the death of his "loyal friend" had left "an unbridgeable void". "We shared everything. Run, my friend, run, and don't stop".

Communication manager for Animalisti Italiani, Rinaldo Sidoli, said: "They killed the hero who, together with rescuers, dug with his four paws during those dramatic hours to find survivors of that massacre".

Dog poisonings aren't uncommon in Italy.

Three cabinet ministers also joined the call for a crackdown.

Italian politicians have promised tougher punishments for those who harm animals after the death of Kaos, a rescue dog hailed as a hero.

She also called for greater penalties against people "who mistreat and kill those who do not even have a voice".
