I wish that title was satire, but it's not.

A man in North London was mauled to death by his Staffordshire bull terrier happened in front of a BBC Film crew who were doing an investigation for a television series about illegal narcotics.

The owner of the Staffordshire bull terrier, Mario Perivoitos, died after an attack in his home in Wood Green, north London, right after the incident occurred back in March.

It's believed that not only the owner but the dog was also under the influence of Crack Cocaine at the time.

During that incident which was originally reported by <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/mar/29/man-mauled-to-death-by-dog-during-interview-bbc-film-crew-staffordshire-bull-terrier">The Guardian shortly after it occurred</a> this past spring, it was also reported that the BBC Film Crew had witnessed the death.

Now investigators who were looking into that case say that the dog itself may have not only ingested Crack Cocaine prior to the mauling which resulted in the owner’s death, but that the dog being high may have contributed to its actions.

Medical examiners say the Staffordshire bull terrier that killed its owner by crushing his larynx in its jaws, which ended his life.

Today, a North London Coroner’s Court heard that the behavior of the dog, who was named Major, was most likely to have been triggered by Crack Cocaine.

Veterinary Toxicologist Nicholas Carmichael said that samples of the dog's urine showed high levels of both cocaine and morphine.

“It is very likely that this dog had consumed drugs, probably eaten them. It is almost impossible to say whether that will make the dog attack, but it does make them respond abnormally,” said Carmichael.

He went in to say, “They become very excited and agitated. It is more likely that this attack happened because this dog had taken cocaine.”

A Pathologist, Julie Higgins, also testified to the court that Perivoitos’s body “included injuries to the neck and face, with extensive haemorrhaging, and the larynx was crushed”.

According to the BBC Film Crew who was in the home when it happened, the man began to have a seizure, and the dog, Major, then pounced on the owner acting irrational and biting his neck.

The dog may have been trying to save his owner, but the drugs obviously led the dog to use to much force and killed the man.

One of the BBC producers, Joshua Haddon, had later managed to wrestle Major off his owner, but it was too late to save him.

As previously stated Major had crushed Mario’s larynx and caused him to lose extreme amounts of blood, where a hospital had later tried to revive revive him by giving him ten additional points but was unsuccessful.

Andrew Walker, the Senior Coroner in the case, came to the conclusion that Perivoitos had died as a consequence of the injuries sustained by his own dog. He also pointed out that the victim himself had taken cocaine before the attack, likely leading to thinned blood.

“It is likely that he was experiencing an epileptic shock, which caused the dog to nip his face before biting his neck. The film crew telephoned an ambulance while attempting to get the dog off Mr. Perivoitos,” he said.

He went on to say, “It is likely that the dog had consumed cocaine by eating it and it is likely that this was an additional factor in the dog’s behavior. Mr. Perivoitos suffered serious injuries and was taken to a major trauma hospital, and died shortly after midnight.”

Walker also gave praise to the BBC crew for their attempts to save Perivoitos from his drug induced dog.

After the hearing, Police told the courts that they have requested that the dog, Major, be euthanized as a result of the death, and the the owner of the flats where the drug users were abusing narcotics had been ordered to no longer allow new residents.
