'Out of control' dog takes 'chunk' out of leg

Police say the dog took a "chunk" of flesh from the man's thigh. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The dog drew blood and was obviously attacking various people. The male had a chunk taken out of his leg - his right thigh - so one would assume he's had quite a nasty bite, which has removed some of the flesh.

– Inspector Joseph Tierney, Gloucestershire Police

The young girl is also treated for a dog bite to her leg. There are no further details of her injuries.
