Mum tells of attack ‘terror’
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’.
