Two people have been hospitalised after being attacked by their own dogs in their home.
Derbyshire police and paramedics were called to a house in Boythorpe Road, Chesterfield, shortly after 7.20pm last night to reports that a man and a woman had been injured by their dogs. Both were taken to hospital by East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Police said the woman is badly injured while the man is in a "less serious" condition.Thank god it's not an innocent member of the public...
Police say the two victims - who are believed to be a mother and her disabled son - remain in a serious condition in hospital.Wait, what..?
The attack is believed to have involved two bull mastiffs, which have since been put down. Another dog which lived at the property - believed to be a terrier type - has been taken into kennels.Gosh! But isn't Frances Ryan always telling us how disabled people live in poverty, barely able to feed themselves?
