A 62-year-old man has died after a dog attack on a property where several animals live, one of which has since been euthanized.

A line of police cars and ambulances rushed to the property in Wrexham, North Wales, off Holt Road after the incident around 11.44am Monday morning.

The Welsh Ambulance Service reported that a 62-year-old man went into cardiac arrest after being bitten by a dog at the property.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The man’s next of kin have been informed and our investigation into the incident is ongoing,” a police spokesman said.

Family members have asked that their privacy be respected at this time.

The dog was safely contained at the property and euthanized by an on-site veterinarian.

Other dogs kept at the property have been removed by trained handlers and are being placed in temporary kennels while the investigation continues.

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 11.33am this morning, Monday 23 May, with reports of a medical emergency in the Holt Road area of ​​Wrexham.

“We dispatched three ambulances, two emergency vehicles and the Wales Air Ambulance to the scene.”
