Young Man Loses Ear in Dog Bite Attack

Posted on October 31st, 2012 No Comments

A 19-year-old Australian man is currently recovering from a dog attack that occurred yesterday in the southwest area of Sydney. According to police officials, the attack occurred at 3:20 p.m. when the teen was walking his dog along Lehn Road and two American Staffordshire terriers began to run toward him.

The two terriers began to attack his legs as the teen attempted to shield his dog from the attackers. He then fell to the ground as a result and this is when the two dogs began to bite his head, tearing off his left ear as a result.

The two dogs, who police originally thought were pit bull terriers, are now in the custody of their owner. Officials investigating the incident have stated that it was thought that the two dogs escaped from their backyard. Police have stated that the owner of the dogs has been helping tremendously in the case and is discussing with council whether action will be taken against the animals.

The owner also stated that he has had the dogs since they were both just puppies and they have never attacked anyone in the past. American Staffordshire terriers are not considered a dangerous dog breed. Officials with the Australian Veterinary Association  stated that the breed of dog should not be the only focus when discussing dog bites and certain breeds should not be targeted because any individual dog can attack. The teenager is currently recovering in Liverpool hospital.
