Hot blood in Spain: a woman dog-walker has been stabbed to death by a fellow dog-walker

Talk about Latin (or should that be Hispanic) passion getting out of hand! A woman dog-walker in Madrid has been fatally wounded by a fellow dog-walker. Her two dogs, naturally enough, turned on her assailant, who left the scene leaving a bloody trail and headed back to his apartment.

The attack apparently occurred after a violent quarrel broke out between the two, who had it seems been involved in a 'relationship' (one assumes not a business relationship). It is not entirely clear from the report, but it would seem that he was followed to his apartment by onlookers who had seen the incident and was attacked by them so he fled and was eventually rescued from his pursuers, who were in the process of beating him up and lynching him, by the police. Wow! This is a clear warning not to to arouse the fiery emotions of the Spanish.
