A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: "The woman was brought to safety and has been taken to hospital with potentially life changing injuries.
"The dog was contained in the garden with the support of the National Police Air Service helicopter, and was later seized by officers."
Once again, why take it alive? Why risk more resources?
A witness has reported that the dog belongs to the woman who was attacked.
Dangerous place, Crowborough.
A pet owner has been warned to keep her dog under control after it bit a woman. Wendy Davy's dog Buster was "dangerously out of control" in Crowborough.
So 61-year-old Davy has been ordered to keep Buster in check, or he will be put down.
Hmmm. I wonder...?
