A devastated father has vowed to press charges after his daughter was killed by a pet dog while she was home alone for less than eight minutes.

Sebastien Caty, 36, the father of the eight-year-old girl named Talya, is planning to file a complaint against her mother’s partner – who owned the dog that attacked her on July 11 in the city of Louviere, Belgium.

The heartbroken father spoke about the last video call he had with his daughter the day before the incident.

“She laughed and acted silly. I will never forget her last words: ‘Papa, I love you’,” he said.

Talya, whose parents were divorced, lived with her mother and her boyfriend whose identity has not been disclosed.

According to local media, her mother had left her home alone for less than eight minutes when one of the man’s dogs – an American Staffordshire Terrier – struck and fatally injured the small girl.

When the mother returned home, she found her daughter’s body laying on the floor and immediately called the emergency services.

However, despite the paramedics’ effort to resuscitate her, Talya succumbed to the injuries less than an hour after she arrived at the hospital.

An autopsy revealed that as well as the bite injures, the girl had also suffered a heart attack.

After the girl’s death, police officers put down the American Staffordshire Terrier due to its aggressive nature, while seizing the other three dogs.

In an interview with a local paper Sudpresse, the girl’s father Sebastien said he was angry that the mother had left his daughter alone with the animals.
