World Soccer reports that Hervas and his wife "were out walking their pet dog when they were attacked by stray dogs in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo and his wife insisted they leave the country immediately."

Zaljeznicar released a statement saying they had terminated the players contract immediately after "express request from the player."
