Joanne Robinson Obituary, Rotherham mum mauled to death by her dog

Joanne Robinson Obituary, Death – Joanne Robinson’s partner told an inquest that her large Italian Mastiff dog mauled her to death at her home in Rotherham because the dog “thought he was an alpha male” and wanted him put down. Jamie Stead’s partner, Joanne Robinson, suffered horrible injuries after being bitten by her dog Rocco on her way home from a night out in July of last year. According to examinations, the 43-year-old caretaker sustained many wounds and bites to her neck, resulting in substantial blood loss, and would have died within minutes of the attack.

On the night Joanne died, she was seated on the sofa when Rocco began “nuzzling” her from behind. This was done by the dog to push his owners off the sofa, allowing him to sit behind them and attract their attention. Mr Stead, on the other hand, seized Rocco and the dog’s eyes “widened and dilated” as he sprang at his owner and bit him on the mouth. He then “lunged” towards Mr Stead, grabbing his forearm and pulling him to the ground. “I was covered in blood and in pain, so I instructed Joanne to call an ambulance,” he claimed in a statement read aloud in front of Doncaster Coroners Court. He bit me through the wrist muscle in the left bicep.”

Fearing that the beast might rip his hand off, the terrified owner recounted “going with” the attack. Then Lola, the couple’s other dog of the same breed, entered the room, and the two dogs began fighting. Mr Stead dashed out of the room, looking for food to distract them. Joanne, on the other hand, decided to stay and try to separate the two dogs. Joanne was sleeping on the couch floor with the dog nearby when he returned a few seconds later. After police arrived to apprehend and take both canines, Joanne was pronounced dead on the spot.

Mr Stead described Rocco as a “Jekyll and Hyde dog” who was “OK with some but not with others” during his testimony. Several fights between the two canines ended in their permanent separation and the exclusion of the couple’s grandchildren from the home. After the attack, the coroner ruled that Rocco was dangerous owing to genetic, clinical, behavioral, and environmental abnormalities. Joanne was described by Mr Stanbury as a “much-loved” daughter, mother, and sibling who was often referred to as the “heart and soul of the party” and who loves her family and pets.

Joanne’s family is pleading with people to learn from her death. “Don’t worry with them,” Joanne’s mother, Dot Robinson, said. Joanne did all she could think of with those animals. It didn’t appear to have any effect. They simply do not understand. They simply aren’t safe.” Ms Robinson is now campaigning for stricter dog ownership regulations after nine fatal attacks throughout the country this year.
