London, Aug 21 (IANS) A dog viciously attacked a British teenager, who suffered 28 bite wounds.

Sixteen-year-old Anthony Armstrong was walking the bull mastiff-pitbull cross. When he tried to stroke it, the dog attacked him.

The Sun said the dog locked its jaws on him, flung him around and tore open his flesh.

Scott Singleton, a friend, and his mother Eileen were injured as they stabbed the dog 30 times with a knife and beat it to death to stop it from tearing Anthony to pieces.

“It was like a lion. It jumped on him, trying to bite his face, got him to the floor and dragged him in its jaws. He was screaming for his life but it had hold of his neck,” Scott was quoted as saying.

“The dog savaged every part of him. You could see through his leg.”
