A 22 year old woman has been seriously injured in a dog attack involving what is believed to have been an American Pitbull Terrier.
Staff at the Lincoln County hospital alerted police after the woman was admitted at around 10:30PM last night. Police immediately warned residents to stay indoors while a hunt for the animal was conducted.
Armed police and a police helicopter were involved in the search.
Insp Michelle McIlroy said:
“She has suffered quite devastating injuries. They are not described as life-threatening, but certainly life-changing.”
The animal – which was not owned by the woman – was captured by police at around 1:30AM this morning and is now in kennels.
