Big scare Thursday April 14 at the end of the morning in Métrich, an annex town of Kœnigsmacker. A lady who was walking her dog was attacked in the street by another stray animal. The latter first attacked the lady’s dog. She tried to intervene to separate them and that’s when she was bitten in the forearms.
The municipal police and gendarmerie services went to the scene. The lady was transported by the Samu to the hospital and got away with four days of ITT. The owner of the stray dog could be identified and heard. For an undetermined reason, his American akita-type animal would have run away from his enclosure. As required by the procedure, he was seen by a veterinarian who checked his vaccinations.
The victim filed a complaint with the police.
