Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

A TOD­DLER who was mauled by a dog at a Syd­ney park will have surgery. The dog was put down on Tues­day and its owner has been charged. The 16-month-old boy and his par­ents were play­ing at a park in Mac­quarie Fields, in Syd­ney’s west, about 7.30pm on Mon­day. The Alaskan mala­mute at­tacked the child, bit­ing him mul­ti­ple times. Po­lice of­fi­cers gave the boy first aid be­fore he was taken to Liver­pool Hos­pi­tal.
