Zambian Footballer Mulala's Dogs Mauled Him to Death

Philemon Mulala, a former Zambian international footballer, died earlier in January 2023 after being mauled by his beloved dogs, and footage of his horrific final moments has surfaced on social media.

On January 7, in Lichtenburg, South Africa, the 60-year-old ex-footballer for Zambia's national team was pronounced dead at the scene. Since then, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has removed the three dogs who attacked him in his backyard from the property (SPCA).

His wife discovered his death under certain circumstances, according to a police statement that was given by spokeswoman Sam Tsulanyane. 'She did not care to go and see what was wrong [while the dogs were barking] as their house is situated on a busy street and the dogs routinely barked at pedestrians and vehicles passing by,' it stated.

When the power came back on [after load shedding], she went inside to look for her husband but was unable to locate him. The wife kept looking and eventually saw her husband laying still in the garden. she revealed that the crossbreeds had bitten his throat and that he had also sustained some injuries to his face.
