A man was left with serious injuries after the dog he was caring for suddenly attacked him.
The animal, believed to be a Staffordshire Bull terrier, turned on the man in the back garden of a property in Garretts Walk, Druids Heath, on Wednesday.
The man managed to release the dog from the grip of his arm and escape into the shed, where he remained until the emergency services arrived.Sadly, police didn’t shoot the thing on the spot, thus saving the taxpayer the kennel boarding fee.
The dog has been seized.
Police are now trying to trace the owner of the dog and are taking statements from witnesses to establish how the incident occurred.Well, it should be easy because surely the victim knows who he was looking after the dog for?
