Dog attack cyclist

Postby Bunged Knee » Fri Nov 30, 2018 8:16 pm

76-Year-Old Man In Surgery After Vicious Dog Attack In Granville. NSW.
From Triple M

The man has sustained serious injuries to his calf after the dog latched onto his leg.

The man is understood to have been riding his bike when the staffy bull terrier escaped from a neighbouring yard.

He is understood to have regularly have ridden along this route in Granville, and the dog is known to have escaped from the yard several times.


Might expect that the owner's dog have to be put down.
ID please? What ID? My seat tube ID is 27.2mm or 31.6mm depending on what bikes I ride today.thanks...

Unfortunately, despite the fault resting with the owner, as you correctly identify, it is likely the dog will be destroyed. :x

Being chased by a blue heeler who bit me on the ankle before I managed to kick at it and get away is what put me off riding at nights. ~20 years ago and I still remember the fear and adrenalin :(

Hopefully the victim makes a full recovery.

Only ever been seriously attacked by a dog. I was still in primary school and a local's pug nipped me on the foot (primary school kids didn't take kindly to shoes where I was brunged up) , the two front teeth sunk in under my tough caloused skin in the bottom of my foot and he was carried about a half a rotation of the crank before he fell off.

The tetanus shot :( that Mum insisted on held greater fear for me than the little punk dog.
