Full report: dog attack victim speaks out

A 13-year-old boy is still in hospital with serious injuries tonight after he was mauled by a dog in Bradford.

Police officers had to shoot the animal dead to save the youngster after it dragged him down stairs and savaged his throat. He's now in a stable condition in hospital.

Today, another attack victim has spoken out - she needed 72 stitches in her face after a neighbour's Staffordshire Bull Terrier turned on her in their garden.

Colleen Hutchinson, who's from Doncaster, will now need plastic surgery. She owns a dog herself but says she's now afraid to be near OTHER animals. She's calling for all dogs to be licensed. You may find some images in Martin Fisher's report disturbing.
