Cheshire Police has now referred the incident to the RSPCA.
A spokesman said: “On the evening of 25 December 2016 police received a report of a dog being injured. On investigation it appeared the dog had attacked another dog and a 58-year-old man. The man received serious injuries to both hands as he tried to get the dog under control and at some point the dog itself was injured.
The dog was treated by a vet and the incident has been referred to the RSPCA.”Another dangerous dog attack on an unsuspecting family pet? Well, yes.
It is understood he was forced to intervene when a Staffordshire Bull Terrier he was fostering attacked his American Staffordshire Terrier.Well, it's going to be really interesting to see how the RSPCA tackles this one, isn't it? Given their own history with such matters.
