“A girl of 10 had plastic surgery yesterday after being savaged by two rottweilers while riding to her gran’s.
Rhianna Kidd, 10, was cycling down the road when she was surrounded by the two huge animals and another younger dog. Gran Irene was watching her arrive after her dad dropped her off and shouted “keep pedalling” - but the dogs attacked and dragged her off the bike.
Horrified Irene said: “One was at her leg. The other was higher up. She was screaming and her clothes were torn and her face was covered in blood. I got to them shouting, ‘Be good’ but I could feel their breath on the back of my leg.”
One of the dogs dragged Rhianna along the ground by the arm. A passing motorist sounded his horn and the dogs briefly backed off - only to return to the attack.
One went for her neck just missing vital arteries but broke Rhianna’s jaw. After Irene got her inside the house on Sunday, the dogs were put down at the request of owner Derek Adam, 37.
Irene, 56, from Dundee, added: “I can’t put into words how big those dogs were. Their heads were like cows - huge. Once we were in the house, the rottweilers were peering in to the living room window.”
A woman who was said to be looking after the dogs has been charged after they were thought to have escaped from her house.” …
