Woman charged after ‘Staffy’ almost ripped dog’s head off with horror neck bite

A woman has been charged after a dog's head was nearly ripped off by another at a park.

Irish red setter Holly was left fighting for life in a horror attack from another dog which locked its jaws around her neck at a park.

Holly's owner Brian Ross, 61, previously explained he got down on his hands and knees beat the Staffy-type dog off her but it refused to let go.

The poor attack victim needed emergency surgery as blood poured out from her neck once the beast released its grip at the football pitches on Great Southern Road, Aberdeen on June 6.

Police launched a probe and have now charged a 25-year-old woman in connection to the incident, Daily Record reports.

She is expected to appear in court at a later date.

Brian said: "Holly was howling and squealing.

"I was down on my hand and knees hitting the dog on the head trying to get it to release but it wouldn’t let go.

"Deborah was absolutely distraught while this was going on – she thought Holly was going to die in front of us.

"When I saw the blood coming from her neck and the dog still had a grip I panicked even more. It was a scary experience."

A statement on Wednesday from the north-east police division confirmed the charges on the 25-year-old woman and said that Holly was 'continuing to recover' after the ordeal.

It read: "We can confirm that a 25-year-old woman has been charged in connection with an incident on Sunday, 6 June, when an Irish Red Setter was attacked by an aggressive dog at the football pitches on Great Southern Road, Aberdeen.

"The Irish Red Setter suffered serious injuries as a result, but is continuing to recover."

Constable Mike Tindal added: “I’d like to thank the public for their response to our original appeal for information, which has been invaluable as we carried out our enquiries.”
