Teenager bitten by dogs outside Asda in Hereford
Updated 2:57pm Monday 10th March 2014 in News
A TEENAGER was bitten by two dogs outside Hereford’s Asda superstore on Saturday.
The 16-year-old sustained wounds to his ankle and wrists in the supermarket’s car park at 7.40pm.
According to police press officer Cathy Anstey, it is believed that the teenager jumped over a wall – which startled the dogs.
The animals then bit the teenager because their natural instinct was “to attack”, added Ms Anstey.
She said the dogs were on leads and the owner tried to stop the attack, meaning that no crime was committed.
