(WIDK By Hannah Tool) - After being raped and stripped naked, a woman was literally thrown to the dogs in southern Ukraine.
The woman told police she was sexually assaulted and beaten before her attackers left her in a field, naked, at the mercy of a number of stray dogs who then viciously attacked her.
The bites she suffered led to her death after her transport to a nearby hosipital in Simferopol, Crimea, according to the Daily Mail.
Ukraine, which is host to the Euro 2012 this summer, has faced scrutiny for the slaughtering of tens of thousands of stray dogs and cats, in an effort to clean up the streets for this summer’s tournament.
In light of the brutal butchering of the 25-year-old woman, the Ukrainian government has agreed to allow for mass-sterilization of their feral animal population.
Before her wounds proved fatal, the woman was able to recount to authorities that she had had an altercation with her friend, who left her alone at the bus stop where her attackers got a hold of her and commenced to violently, physically assault her, eventually abandoning her in the field where she met her fate.
If apprehended and convicted, the men who abandoned the woman in the field may face up to eight years in prison.
