Tragic Attack On Boy At A Pet Shop.
Slade Phillips a 7 year old boy is in hospital after attempting to pet a dog in Vernon’s Pet Planet. The dog was sitting next to the checkout when Slade went to give it a bone. The boxer dog jumped up and bit the boy in the face.
Rushed to hospital in an ambulance to have his ripped cheek stitched up, Slade has to live with memories that no child should have to endure. His fear was that he would not be able to talk after the attack.
The dog has never attacked before, but one has to wonder that it had shown no sign of aggression. The descision was made to keep it away from children but it “was not certain whether the dog should be put down.”
