In addition, on social networks this weekend, the daughter of a 68-year-old lady evokes another attack in a street in Lattes, but this time by a dog whose the owner has been identified and for good reason: present and having attended, helpless to the attack, he reacted promptly by recovering his dog: “My 68-year-old mother who was walking her dog on a leash in Lattes was bitten by a dog on the loose. I thank the owner for having helped my mother, who was very shocked, ”writes the daughter of the victim, who sends this message: “Hold your dogs leash”.
