Dog Attack

An Alsatian dog attacked two women out walking a dog in the industrial estate area of Vélez-Málaga. One woman had her hand badly bitten whilst the other had to be treated for shock after her dog was killed. Both women were treated at the Hospital Comarcal de la Axarquía.

Hospital staff reported that one woman, aged 58, had lost tissue mass to the hand. The other woman, aged 62, was in a state of shock and anxiety, having witnessed how her dog was killed by the Alsatian. Both women were allowed to go home that same day.
