Re­cent dog at­tacks in the city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A NUM­BER of dog at­tacks on Peter­bor­ough res­i­dents have taken place in re­cent times.

Last week, elec­tion can­di­date Pi­eter Smit had his right hand mauled by a dog as he posted elec­tion leaflets through the let­ter­box of a house in Birch­wood, Or­ton Gold­hay. He suf­fered a bro­ken in­dex fin­ger in the at­tack which left the nail on his mid­dle fin­ger “hang­ing by a thread”.

In Jan­uary pen­sioner Linda Hider was left with se­vere cuts af­ter an at­tack by three Stafford­shire bull ter­ri­ers as she walked her dog in Sun­nymead, Wer­ring­ton.
