VIDEO: Woman bitten on chest by dog while trying to protect pet at pub

A WOMAN was bitten on the chest during a savage dog attack as she tried to protect her pet at a Bournemouth pub.

Vicky Wyman, of Tuckton, had been on a leisurely walk with a friend and her four-year-old jack russell, Millie, when they stopped for a drink at the Iford Bridge pub on Thursday, May 15.

The 36-year-old described her horror when she saw what she believed to be a staffordshire bull terrier viciously attack Millie, gripping the head of her beloved pet in its jaw.

Ms Wyman, a nurse, said it was terrifying and was herself bitten as she and her friend tried to pull the bull terrier away.

“It was only afterwards I realised I had been bitten,” she added. “It was very sore.”

“It was horrendous, the way it was shaking Millie. I thought she was going to die.

“If it had gone for her neck then she would have been killed.”

Millie sustained deep cuts at the top of her head and around her eyes and Mrs Wyman said her children, Ella, 12, and Leah, eight, had been left extremely upset when they saw the extent of the injuries.

Millie is being treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication, with the vet telling Mrs Wyman that the dog was very lucky to be alive and could have lost an eye.

Mrs Wyman said the police and council had been informed.

It is the owners not the dog. Staffordshire Bull Terriers can be very friebndly dogs. Any dog that is brought up without proper training and socialisation can attack even a jack russell. The owner should be banned from having any dog again as is only the poor dog that will suffer when he gets caught. The dog does what his owner trains him to do but will be the one punished for this.

I am the friend that helped get the dog off Millie, we were not sure of the what type of dog it was and are not out to stereotype certain types of dogs, it was a very surreal horrible thing that happened, we are forgetting that we are trying to highlight the fact that all dogs should be on a lead when in public area, such as a pub, and controlled by their owners, it could have easily been a child that was attacked. It also would have been nice to have had the sympathy and help of the bar staff.

First of all, there is no need to make Staffies a banned breed, when raised correctly they are fantastic dogs and are demonised by the press due to a minority of bad owners. They aren't the first breed this has happened to, Dobermanns, Rottweilers and German Shepherds have all been victims of the press in the past, yet we never hear anything about these breeds any more even though I am sure there are problems with individuals of these breeds, they just aren't the right breed for the press any more. There are aggressive examples of all breeds - I regularly encounter a Labrador that is aggressive towards other dogs, but if it were to attack another dog and the owner were to go to the press then I can guarantee that they wouldn't be interested as labs are thought of as being a friendly breed and they couldn't make a sensationalist story out of it.
Secondly, it is very easy to say that the other dog involved should be put to sleep or that the owner is to blame, but we have only heard one side of the story, we don't know what happened in the lead up to the attack, so cant ultimately say who is to blame. I am not saying that this is what happened in this case, but there are plenty of small dogs out there that are allowed to behave aggressively towards other dogs, with the owners making excuses such as them not liking larger dog as though this makes the behaviour ok. There will be times when these dogs pick on the wrong dog and end up getting injured when the other dog retaliates. I live near a couple of terrier crosses who cant walk pass another dog without launching themselves at the other dog, and have ran around my own dog snapping at his legs. Luckily he is well socialised and doesn't react to them, but one day they will do this to a less tolerant dog, yet when they get injured then the owner of the other dog will get the blame. Not all dogs that get injured by other dogs are the innocent party.

Any dog is uncontrollable in that situation and staffies are no different. I work in a vets and have seen awful injuries caused by small dogs, often terriers, because owner have been unable to stop the attack. Terriers have been bred to kill, the only difference between the breeds in this sense is WHAT they have been bred to kill, the instincts are still there, and when they get in the right frame of mind they are very difficult to stop. No one with any sense would suggest banning St Bernards because they are a powerful breed, but if one were to attack another dog then it would be pretty much impossible to do anything about it. Aggressive staffies are in a minority, the press and some irresponsible owners have just done an amazing job of making it look like they are all bad and that they are the only breed ever to attack another dog. I am sure the statistics are out there somewhere, but would put money on statistics showing that the chances of a dog being attacked by a breed other than a staffy being very high, its just no one bothers to make a big deal when another breed is involved.

We have a Stafford that we show and I am disappointed that this has been attributed to the Staffords, the owner appeared not 100 % sure it was a Stafford and also was it a cross? because they are also not Staffords they are mongrels.

Please when deciding to brand a breed with one dogs deed be 100 % sure you are being accurate with your information as this is slanderous if not!!!!

We have a Stafford that we show and I am disappointed that this has been attributed to the Staffords, the owner appeared not 100 % sure it was a Stafford and also was it a cross? because they are also not Staffords they are mongrels. Please when deciding to brand a breed with one dogs deed be 100 % sure you are being accurate with your information as this is slanderous if not!!!! 3xCrufts-stafford!!

you are right..any dog is capable of attacking and even a small dog can cause damage/injury .
the difference is if my border terrier was to have a go at someone or another dog(god forbid) i have more chance of grabbing/kicking/lif

ting my dog away but with a staffie type dog...could i do that?
they are really powerful dogs, if they dont want to let go they will not and unfortunately i think they are uncontrollable in this situation.
i know 2 people that have had staffies and they have both attacked other dogs one of which tore my friends(the owner) hand up when he was trying to separate them.
whilst i would visit his house i would never take my dog or daughter around there just incase.
dont get me wrong, i only ever saw the nice side of him and he was lovely,really happy and liked cuddles...........bu

t...........when they go......can they be controlled?.....i think not.
they are a dangerous dog and in the wrong hands,a killing machine...
on the bright side i think on this occasion the staffie was only playing, you are correct that his jaws would lock if he was serious.....lucky uh..
Utter rubbish.

This 'locking jaws' thing is a myth. No dog on the planet has the mechanism that makes jaws lock.
Why type something that just causes more untruths to spread?

Yes, Staffies & other's of the 'Molosser' family have wide heads which mean a strong bite. Incidentally, a stick placed in the side of the mouth easily opens the dogs jaws.
Obviously, being Terriers, Staffies have a 'bite & shake' method of attack, so injuries are often serious.

It's the wholesale breeding of Staffs by back yard owners, who see them as money makers, that has caused genetically flawed & potentially dangerous gene lines.
Also so many owners haven't a clue when it comes to training & socialising their dogs or understanding their dogs body language, be it a Staffie , German Shepherd or even a Pug.
I have a Staffie. I always keep him on a lead in public places to avoid any problems, although I cannot control others dogs, who are out of control & wouldn't hesitate to give an dog a boot if it decides to try any attack on my dog, although most people panic when confronted with snaring aggressive dogs, which is understandable. Before I get an abuse, I love all dogs & Id rather kick a dog BEFORE it gets to the attack stage & worry about upsetting the owner later.

They're a breed for people who are too scared to go out on their own but aspire to looking hard and tough. Really quite pathetic and I agree they should be banned.
You really should restrict yourself to commenting on things about which you have some knowledge
I do! I have had several German Shepherds but the only time I have ever been attacked by a dog was a Staffordshire Benefit Terrier with 3 chavs drinking Special Brew.

A bit over the top don't you think ? I can assure you that I am not a moron, maybe you are in fact the moron by suggesting that I "should be put down" because I happen to own a staffy!! My dog is always on a lead in public, and has never in 4 years ever so much as growled at my young grandchildren or attacked another dog. Think you need to keep your narrow minded , idiotic opinion to yourself.
