Dog-attack boy has ear reattached

The two-year-old boy savaged by a dog on Waitangi Day has undergone surgery to have his ear reattached.

A Canterbury District Health Board spokeswoman said the boy was recovering and in a comfortable position after the surgery in Christchurch Hospital.

It would not be known for a few days whether the operation was a success.

The toddler was attacked by the dog at Lake Crichton, 6km south-east of Dunsandel, about 3.30pm on Wednesday. The boy's ear was ripped off in the attack. MORE>>
