Stoppa had received a video documenting the training of dogs from a resident of the neighborhood. The envoy, with his cameraman, went on the scene for a journalistic investigation on the matter. Their presence aroused the reaction of the family of the man who appears in the video filmed by the citizien: they tried to snatch the camera from operator and, in a frantic scene, it is possible to hear a woman’s voice threatening the envoy: “I swear on my mother that I’ll make you pay. You’ll never climb the stairs again.”
The Carabinieri then arrived on the spot, having received a complaint for mistreatment of animals.
