Dog attack gran returns to her home

A GRANDMOTHER who was left needing surgery twice after she was mauled by two dogs returned to her Oxford home for Christmas.

Sushil Giddy, 51, suffered deep bite wounds to her right arm after the attack in Aldebarton Drive, Barton, on Saturday, December 15.

Ms Giddy spent a week in Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital before going home on Friday, December 21.

Her daughter Natasha said she was “still shaky” and unwell after undergoing two surgeries under general anaethestic – including a skin graft.

She also said her mum was having regular check-ups at the hospital and could face another operation.

Pensioner Ken Deadman was bitten on his left arm in the same incident, spending nine hours in hospital.

After the attack, police arrested a 30-year-old man from Headington, Oxford, on suspicion of being in charge of a dangerously out-of-control dog that injured someone. He was released on bail until January 22.

The two dogs were seized by police and will be kept until the investigation is over.

Yes - or at least put inside for a couple of years and banned from ever keeping animals. A dog who has been looked after properly will not attack a person, these attacks are always the result of cruel or negligent dog care.

Shows how little you know about dogs then doesn't it. ANY dog, well behaved, badly behaved, well trained or otherwise can be responsible for an attack. No dog can be 100% trusted.

I've yet to see it in nine years with my dog and surrounded by other people's. THe only thing I've seen a dog attack is another dog, and that was under severe provocation.
