Dog attack **warning** graphic picture

Recommended Posts

This is my dipstick brother who lost his nose at the weekend after coming out of a pub and walking over to a nearby fence in the carpack to stroke a dog.


He has always been ugly but this is going to make him even uglier


A temporary graft has been taken from his head and pulled down to cover the wound, it should look a lot better once he has the proper op


It could have been a child walking over to the fencing in the carpark and putting it's hand through......doesn't bear thinking about.


He says he isn't going to take action because he doesn't want the dog to be put down. I have told him he's an idiot, it's about safe guarding others. If the dog is that bad, the fence should have been a solid one

Thats a terrible incident to have happen when at the end of the day all your brother was doing is enjoying leisure time .. he wasnt climbing a tree, riding a motorbike, driving a car. The dogs owner needs taking to task on this.

Dont know the type of dog yet. The issue I have is that the fence is onto a public area, so really the fence should have been solid or have an inner fence so the dog couldn't get to the slatted fence


I must say it does look worse than what it is because the have taken a flap of scalp, left it attached and twisted it round just above his nose then grafted it on the wound.


This leaves a blood vessel attached in the graft itself, once it has taken the cut off the bit of graft then twist it back and sew the remainder back into the scalp.
