A pit bull ripped off the hand of its owner's mother in a savage 18-minute attack, as terrified bystanders desperately tried to save her.
The 52-year-old woman was walking the animal in Northern Moor, Manchester, on Wednesday evening when it locked it’s jaw around her hand.
Brave neighbours, who would only give their names as Liz and Leanne, came to the woman’s aid when they heard her terrified screams.
Leanne, 30, tried to approach the dog but it was 18 minutes before they could loosen the dog’s grip but it had already severed her hand from her arm.I can’t help by be cheered up by this new phenomenon of vicious chavdogs literally biting the hands that feed them. Instead of innocent bystanders or their pets.
Around 30 horrified residents came to the woman’s aid and the dog was eventually prised away from her by a 34-year-old man.
She was taken into a friend’s house with her severed hand until an ambulance arrived to take her to hospital. The 34-year-old man, who also suffered numerous bite injuries, helped officers restrain the dog before it was locked in a cage and taken away by GMP.It should have been shot then and there on the spot.
Now we get to pay for its (hideously expensive) incarceration and the trial of its pea-brained owner.
