Woman Pets Cute Dog Along China Street, Gets Bitten On The Face & Badly Injured

Woman’s Face Mauled & Disfigured After Petting Dog In China

Dog lovers might find a fluffy cute dog on the streets irresistible, but a recent video serves as a reminder to be careful. A woman and her daughter saw a cute dog lying on the streetside in China.

While holding an umbrella, the woman squatted down and stroked the dog, who immediately sat up. Her daughter followed suit.

The white dog then suddenly lunged and mauled the woman in the face. A nearby man in a green apron rushed over and chased the animal off her.

The attack left the woman bleeding and her face disfigured. The owner insisted his dog doesn’t usually bite, but nevertheless agreed to compensate her.

The woman fell to the ground, screaming. The dog did not let up, charging in around her legs to maul her face again.

A man in a green apron, reportedly the owner of the noodle store next door, immediately rushed over to help.

He yelled loudly, but the dog continued its assault on the poor woman, who screamed horrifically. The store owner then kicked at the creature and dragged it off the woman.

All the while, the young daughter stood at the side, seemingly in shock at the sudden attack.

The storeowner chased the dog away, while concerned bystanders came by to check what was happening. Meanwhile, the woman’s daughter hurriedly grabbed her phone, possibly to dial for help.

Wailing in constant agony, the woman sat up, revealing her face soaked in blood from her injuries. She screamed, looking at her hands which were also drenched in blood.

Thereafter, a helpful noodle shop patron rushed out and handed her some paper towels to soak up the blood. She continued sobbing and screaming, while her daughter put her hands up to her head helplessly. One of the bystanders eventually hurried over to comfort the young girl.

Luckily, the young girl escaped unscathed.

The dog’s owner, whose identity remains unconfirmed, claimed that his dog doesn’t usually bite. He attributed the mauling to the woman unintentionally provoking it with her teasing, according to China Press.

Nevertheless, he agreed to compensate the victim for her injuries.

Other online speculations included the woman’s umbrella frightening the dog by appearing like a big opaque net.

Regardless of the actual reasoning behind the dog’s sudden attack, the video serves as a reminder not to approach and touch unfamiliar animals.

If the animal has an owner, always seek permission first. Otherwise, keeping a safe and respectful distance may be the best choice.
