A four-year-old boy has been left with serious, life-changing injuries after being attacked by a dog in Liverpool. The child was injured in the face and head by a Bull Mastiff type dog during a visit to a friend's house in Norris Green on Saturday, said police.
A "brave neighbour" fought the dog off and "probably saved the life of this young boy", a spokesman said.
Well done, that man! And did the Liverpool cops turn up and finish the job then and there?
Reader, of course they didn't.
"Our enquiries into the full circumstances of the incident are ongoing, and we have seized the dog for the safety of the community and to establish its breed."It doesn't need to be alive to do that, does it?
Why not a cultural exchange programme to assist you in dealing with dangerous animals?
