A nine-year-old boy was left with serious injuries after he was attacked by a dog as he played with a friend in woodland in Leeds.Charming!
Police are now hunting the owner, who walked away as the boy lay with a broken wrist and injuries to his face in woodland in Middleton.
The dogs, which were not on leads, ran towards the boy and attacked him. The man intervened but then walked off out of the woods and is not believed to have contacted the emergency services.It seems the police don’t want to be too condemnatory, after all, children getting savaged by uncontrolled dogs, well, it’s not quite as bad as golliwog displays or humorous dummies of Middle Eastern leaders, is it?
Acting Detective Inspector Richard Stead, of City and Holbeck CID, said: “This is a very worrying incident where a young boy has suffered serious injuries. On face value, the actions of the man walking the dogs appear to be very callous, as he has not tried to get help.”But on the other hand, he might have a cultural reason for letting a kid scream in agony from the wounds his animals inflicted.
Who really knows? We don’t like to judge…
