Part of a man’s finger was bitten off by a dog during a savage daytime attack in North Devon.
The 55-year-old man was walking near Jones’s Hill, Croyde, on the morning of Good Friday when the dog - described as a black and white collie-type - attacked.
According to Devon and Cornwall Police, the dog was off its lead and bit the man on the hand - causing part of his finger to come off.
Police later attended but the suspect, who is described as white, approximately 50-years-old and around 5ft 10ins tall, had already left the scene.
Officers are keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone with CCTV which may assist with identifying the dog owner.
