Police Investigate Dog Attack

Police in Bournemouth are appealing for a man to come forward after a woman was bitten by one of his boxer dogs in the Stour Valley Nature Reserve.

The 45-year-old woman from Bournemouth was bitten as she spoke to the dog’s owner in the nature reserve, at around 11.40am on Monday 27 February 2012.

Police Constable Lee Harrison, of Bournemouth police, said:

“I understand that the owner was walking a total of three boxer dogs. One of these dogs bit the woman on the hand, causing a minor injury.

“I would like to speak with this man and I would urge him to come forward at the earliest possible opportunity.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who has any information about this man.”

The dog owner is white, aged in his forties, six feet two inches tall and of a slim build. He was wearing blue cargo trousers at the time of the incident.

It is also known that the boxer dog in question had recently been spayed.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101.
