Tare’s two dogs were kept regularly on a leash and unfortunately, his poodle was killed in the attack, with the other dog sustaining injuries, as well as Tare himself.

Tare was seriously upset by the incident and loss of his pet and has announced that he will push for civil and criminal action in response to the attack.

His son Etienne paid respect to his fallen pet, posting two short videos on his Instagram story with the caption:

Rest in peace my little one, I miss you so much. I will always keep you in my heart.
