Appeal after dog attack in Frome
Avon & Somerset Police are investigating an incident in which a man was bitten by a dog in Frome last month. The incident happened in fields off Vallis Vale between 3.30pm and 4pm on Monday 10 April.
A couple were walking their two dogs across the fields. A dark grey Staffy X Pitbull dog, with no collar and not on a lead, approached them. The dog attacked their 14-week old puppy and one of the owners, a man, got bitten as he intervened. He needed hospital treatment for a hand injury as a result. The puppy also required veterinary care and stitches.
Police say that the owner of the Staffy X Pitbull is white, around 6ft 2ins, and he was missing his front teeth.
Police now want to identify the owner of this dog as part of their ongoing investigation. If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5223082794.
