Dog destroyed after attack

Flesh around a man's nose was left in shreds after he was mauled by a pit bull dog at the weekend.

The dog was put down yesterday.

Masterton District Council dog control destroyed the dog, which attacked the 66-year-old man early on Sunday. The wounds in the man's face needed 25 stitches.

It was the second dog attack in Masterton in less than a week that has left its victim with the prospect of permanent scarring.

Ranger Craig Robinson said that in the latest attack, a pit bull terrier had charged from a Winslow St house and lunged at the victim's dog as they were walking past the property.

As the man tried to pull the attacking dog off, he was savaged about the face. MORE>>

    Stupid Man deserved it. Everyone knows you NEVER EVER get in between two dogs fighting. You yell them down or use a bucket of water.
