A 19 year old student was badly hurt in a dog attack whilst waiting at a bus stop in Batley Carr at around 10am last Tuesday.  The dog, an unspecified cross breed became very aggressive towards her and lunged at her.  The woman tried to escape, but the dog jumped at her shoulders, biting both arms and, in pushing her to the ground, broke her ankle.  Fortunately, 2 men came to her rescue and a lady took her to the hospital in her car.

The lady who was left badly shaken by the attack, has a cast on her leg and 4 stitches in her arms, which makes it impossible for her to use crutches.

There was no owner around and the police are looking for the dog.  Anyone with information should ring Batley Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.
