The dog's urine had high levels of cocaine and morphine in it

A Staffordshire bull terrier that mauled its owner to death in front of a BBC documentary crew most likely had been given crack cocaine.

The dog’s owner, Mario Perivoito was killed at his home in Wood Green, north London, after the terrier crushed his larynx in its jaw in March.

An inquest at north London coroner’s court heard that the erratic and violent behaviour of the dog could have been triggered by crack cocaine, The Guardian reported. Nicholas Carmichael, a veterinary toxicologist, said that samples of the canine’s urine indicated high levels of cocaine and morphine. ‘It is very likely that this dog had consumed drugs, probably eaten them,’ Carmichael told Mail Online. ‘It is almost impossible to say whether that will make the dog attack, but it does make them respond abnormally.

‘They become very excited and agitated. It is more likely that this attack happened because this dog had taken cocaine.’

A BBC crew were at Perivoito’s home filming Drugs Map of Britain when the incident happened, but it was not caught on camera.
