"There are stray dogs all over the world, but it is important that you have been taking measures to tackle the problem," DeMaio told Fandakova, as cited by the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency.

Aggressive stray dogs are believed to have been responsible for killing two elderly men since the beginning of 2012.
