Shortly after 9:10PM on Friday, 17 November, officers responded to a report that a person had been attacked by a dog outside an address on Bankers Road in West Bay. It was reported that a dog had gotten loose from the yard of the residence and had bitten a woman, who was passing by, several times, causing serious injuries to her legs and arm. The owner of the dog arrived on scene and restrained the dog, and conducted first aid on the victim prior to the arrival of the police and emergency medical services.
The woman was transported to hospital via ambulance, where she remains being treated for what appear to be serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The matter is under investigation in conjunction with the Department of Agriculture.
