A police spokesman said: "Officers are investigating the incident for the potential offence of a dog being dangerously out of control."Will it take a lot of investigating? Reader, it will not...
Theresa Anderson was walking up the stairs to her son’s flat at a house in Ramsden Street last Wednesday when a dog appeared and came “racing” down the steps towards her.
The dog grabbed hold of Mrs Anderson’s leg and dragged her outside.
The animal, believed to be a Staffie-cross, then managed to get hold of her again and bit through her leg to the bone.Difficult for the police to fumble the ball on this one, you'd think.
It is understood the dog’s owner has had the animal put down.Is it really? Will the police buy it, and say 'Well, no point in taking him to court'..?
Place your bets!
