Dog owner haunted by victim's look of fear

The owner of four pig-hunting dogs that attacked a 13-year-old boy says he is haunted by the look of fear he saw in the boy's eyes as the dogs tried to tear him apart.

Stewart Witeri's four cross-bred bull terrier and greyhound pig dogs pulled the boy off his bike as he cycled past the keen hunter's Waihou farmhouse on Monday evening.

During the five-minute attack the boy suffered more than 100 bite marks to his legs, buttocks and arms.

Mr Witeri told The Dominion Post he had not slept since the attack, and that he would never trust a dog again "not even a poodle".

"[The boy] yelled out, 'I'm going to die, I'm going to die'," the 37-year-old said.

"I looked into his eyes and there was this terrible look of fear that he was going to die."
