Mum tells of at­tack ‘terror’

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

MUM Chyna Clarke has spo­ken of her ‘terror’ when bull mas­tiff dog Buster at­tacked her daugh­ter Evie-Mae Macfar­lane.

Chyna, 23, was five months preg­nant at the time of the in­ci­dent and told how she feared for her daugh­ter’s life.

She told the Ob­server: “The dog just came from out of nowhere as I was clos­ing the door. I could hear it be­hind me and then saw it get hold of her and shake her around in its’ mouth be­fore throw­ing her to the floor. I just picked her up and ran in­side. I was ter­ri­fied and just went into auto-pi­lot. I thought she was se­ri­ously hurt.

“I phoned the am­bu­lance straight away as I could see blood drip­ping from her leg. At first we thought she would need plas­tic surgery. For­tu­nately they man­aged to clean the wound in a few hours and we were back home the same night.”

Chyna said Evie-Mae, who starts nurs­ery at St Ni­cholas’ School in Church in Septem­ber, was ‘re­ally ter­ri­fied’ and now ‘won’t go any­where near of dogs’.
