According to the police, the woman had to undergo emergency surgery for several hours during the night. The 70-year-old is now said to be in intensive care.
Meanwhile, the police took care of the animals in the apartment. Because the dogs were apparently neglected and emaciated, the officials brought in a veterinarian. He in turn made sure that the animals were taken care of. In addition to the four dogs, there were also three cats.
The police are now investigating the 26-year-old on suspicion of negligent bodily harm and animal cruelty.
