I'm 73. After leaving the post office sorting office in The Quadrant, Hoylake, at appx 10.45am on Saturday 14th September,and walking down the street,a large alsatian dog not on a lead attacked me without any provocation from me, biting me on both legs and making me fall heavily onto the hard pavement.As well as the bites my right knee was twisted, right elbow grazed, right hand sprained and with a small piercing,middle finger on left hand bleeding profusely, both buttocks bruised, right arm and shoulder strained,painful/stiffness left of throat, difficulty in turning head to left.I have bad backache.No apology or offer of help or enquiry as to my health from the owner, who put the dog on a lead (too late)and refused to give his details, saying 'do you want the dog put down?'.He then said 'I'm going for a walk' and then left me and went off towards the roundabout near the Quadrant.The police were informed when I got home and later Wirral Council,and my son took me to the walk in centre where the cuts and bites were cleaned and dressed,I had a tetanus injection and was prescribed antibiotics. I'm now feeling rough and having difficulty sleeping because of the injuries.
The owner was a white male,appx 5' 7'', balding/shaved head,stocky, maybe 40ish, light clothing possibly jeans and t shirt.I'll know him when I see him......
The police, council, and my family are keen to find this person.Please PM me if you can identify him - it could be you or your child next.
