A shocking attack occurred in broad daylight in Vienna: Ingrid T. (54) is shown here lying in hospital after the brutal assault. Motive: Islamic religious hatred against her two dogs! “The animals are unclean,” as asserted by the attacker, a Somali asylum-seeker.
She was talking with the neighbors at the garden gate — the deaf, almost blind, three-legged Collie mix “Panda” sat peacefully; the ten-month-old “Poco” walked along the alley towards Ingrid T.’s parents’ house. “I saw a veiled woman approaching slowly. I knew some people from these countries do not like dogs, so I went to Poco and wanted to pull him back,” says Ingrid T. from her hospital bed.
“She grabbed me, spun me around and scratched me”
Then, as the Viennese said, the Somali woman (18 years old, a legal resident of Austria) attacked her. “She grabbed me, spun me around, scratched me” — until both fell to the ground. It took three men to pull the woman off the 54-year-old. “I couldn’t feel my legs,” recalls Ingrid T.
“We do not want dogs: they are dirty”
The victim had to endure two operations in the Wilhelminen Hospital — her knee was smashed; an artificial knee was surgically implanted. Why did all that happen? Because this is about culture; the Somali’s husband husband supposedly told Ingrid T: “We don’t want dogs, they are filthy!”
Ingrid T. is expecting a long recovery. Who will pay for all this? Her lawyer, Manfred Ainedter, doesn’t know. The Somali woman does not have liability insurance: “This will probably be a precedent.”
