Clark, 41, of Horton Road, Brighton, was walking along the beach with a friend on May 18 last year when the two dogs attacked the second man.
Witnesses told how the pair continued to maul the man after he had passed out in the sea. With the dogs out of control, passers-by called the police and a dog unit and armed response team were on the scene in minutes.Hurrah!
But paramedics were unable to get to the injured man until the dogs were subdued. One officer received bite wounds to his leg and hand and was taken to hospital.Ummm. What happened? Was the Firearms Team scrabbling around in the Quality Street tin to find a live round?
The dogs were later put down.Why not 'put them down' then and there, and spare your colleagues a mauling? Sorry! Another mauling...
