Woman bitten by a Dog in the Woods above Kirk Brae, Shandon
Added on 03 November 2020
This could have happened to a child, hence the warning.
For the record the the dog was a mongrel about the size of a labrador, with pale pinkish-fawn fur. Its ears were small and flopped forwards, like a terrier.
The elderly male dog owner, wearing a pale raincoate, did not respond to the shouts of the victim; maybe he did not realise that it had happened or did not hear. On medical advice the victim went to the Vale of Leven where the treatment was strong antibiotics.
