Dog attacks three year old child in Colmenar

A three year old child has been seriously injured after being attacked by a dog in Colmenar.

The child was eating a sandwich, enjoying the local festivities, when a large dog came bounding over and attacked him. He suffered deep wounds to the head, face and neck and the next few days also bring the possibility of infection from the bites.

The owner of the dog refused to show the dog’s vaccination book and then later denied the dog was even his.

The parents of the child have made a denuncia against the owner but the dog is still free to run around as, apparently, the authorities have no animal collection service available until Monday.
