Princess, the goat

Goat owner Ali Sever, who has raised Princess since she was a kid, told local media: “We were dining together when the Dogo Argentino suddenly attacked my goat.

“A local resident hit the dog with a chair and Princess managed to escape, but the chase continued into a shop.

“My goat then spent three hours in surgery as her tail was shredded. I will use the vet’s report to file a complaint with the police.

“Officers have asked me to bring photos along and I have everything prepared.

“I was with Princess during her treatment, we always eat in restaurants and do things together.”

Local vet Mitat Levent said: “When the goat arrived, it was bleeding profusely. We treated the animal and it is now okay.

It is unclear what happened to the dog in the end.
