Neville's step-daughter Stella Matthews said her mother had been on the phone to him when the dogs launched their fatal attack.

Stella said: “Apparently he had gone outside and put the phone down and my mum had heard scuffling and shouting and growling.

“She stayed on the phone for a good 25, 30 minutes"

And Neville's daughter Nataria Moore added that her father’s death and the nature of it had “shocked” the family and close-knit community, reports New Zealand outlet Stuff.

“We’re surviving, just,” she said. “It’s a shock. When I found out, I felt like the air had been taken from the room.”

Moore said her father had a "big heart" and had helped out a friend who needed somewhere to live.

She added: “He was actually trying to get him out [the friend] because he didn’t want those dogs around him.

“And he tried to protect his two dogs during all this by keeping them locked inside. They weren’t involved at all.”

Other members of the community also paid tribute to Neville, describing him as "kind and generous" and a "big support to people".

Father Maliu ‘Otutaha, the reverend at St Peter’s Panguru, said: “He was very active in the community and a big support to people.

“It was very sad for the community to lose him, because he was very kind and generous.”

As of now, two dogs remain on the loose after police shot dead one of them and captured two others on Thursday. 

One reportedly came back on Friday morning according to reports by 1news.

Cops urged members of the public to avoid any stray dogs in the area and to call 111 immediately if they are seen.

Police added they were unable to provide a description of the animals involved in the tragic attack at this stage.

A post-mortem examination of Neville is due to be carried out on Saturday, but police will remain at the scene overnight according to Far North Area Investigations Manager Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Dalzell said.

The Far North District Council’s district services general manager Dr Dean Myburgh said around 25 dogs had been taken from the property to its Kaitāia shelter after being "rounded up".

He said they were unregistered and some were puppies and confirmed the primary breeds of the dogs were neo mastiff and bull dog cross.

Myburgh also described the dogs as being in "very good condition".

"It's unknown why there were that many dogs on site. It's just something that the police will have to get to the bottom of, and we will be assisting them where we can."

A history check on the property found there were no active registered dogs.

Wanda Nara cheekily ‘edits’ Instagram boob shot to avoid ban amid claims hubby Mauro Icardi is close to Man Utd transfer

WANDA NARA was up to her usual tricks with another cheeky selfie on Instagram amid speculation of Manchester United chasing Mauro Icardi.

But this time the actress and model edited her boob shot to avoid getting a social media ban.

The wife and agent of striker Icardi, 35, can barely go a day without posting a glamorous photo of herself in skimpy clothing to her 13.6million followers.

So it was no different when it was time for bed in Milan on Saturday night.

Mum-of-five Nara posted the sultry snap of her lying on the covers in just her underwear online, showing off her aeroplane tattoo.

But with the sky-blue bra pretty much see-through and leaving next-to-nothing to the imagination, she added her own censorship with a hand-drawn cross over the nipple.

Paris Saint-Germain are three games into their new season - but Icardi is yet to be included in any of the matchday squads.

His future looks certain to be away from the Parc des Princes.

And reports on Friday suggested Nara was contacted by Manchester United over a possible transfer swoop for the ex-Inter Milan ace.

Icardi, 29, managed just five goals last season - his worst tally since breaking into the first team at Sampdoria in 2012.
