Dog attacks owner couple to stop their fightMarch 29th, 2009 - 11:05 am ICT by IANS
Toronto, March 29 (IANS) A fight between a Canadian couple upset their faithful dog so much that he attacked them to end the fight.
But in the process, the dog bloodied the husband and his wife so badly that they had to be rushed to hospital for multiple stitches.
The incident happened Friday night in Calgary city when a pit bull cross got angry as it saw his masters fighting. According to Calgary Herald, the pit bull cross attacked its owners when the couple began shouting at each other loudly.
A police spokesman told the newspaper said the attack began just before 9 p.m. when the argument between the man and woman became nasty.
The dog first attacked the man and then the woman.
“The man managed to get the dog off, but the woman could not,” said the police spokesman.
“They were both bitten very seriously, all over their bodies, head, face, neck, arms, everywhere,” he added.
The bleeding couple were immediately rushed to hospital where they received multiple stitches for bite injuries.
Ed Karout, a neighbour who witnessed the attack, told the newspaper, the dog was “all over” the woman. “The dog was actually bitting at her and pulling at her.
“It was pretty bad.”
He said, “I saw blood all over her shirt. She was trying to get into the house. (The man) was trying to pull her in, and the (dog was) dragging her back out.”
He said he started honking his horn to distract the dog, but it didn’t work.
The dog was captured and handed over to veterinary authorities, police said.
