Woman mauled by Rottweilers in Netherton dog attack

A woman in her 40s was attacked by two Rottweilers while attempting to pet them in Netherton. Merseyside Police responded to reports of the incident on Park Lane West at around 5.45pm on Friday, August 18. The woman sustained multiple bites on her arms and leg from the dogs, who were on a lead at the time.

The owners of the Rottweilers, a man and a woman, tried to intervene and free the dogs from the victim. The man took the dogs away from the scene while the female owner stayed with the injured woman until the police arrived.

Police officers provided first aid to the woman until an ambulance transported her to the hospital for further treatment. In connection with the incident, a 41-year-old man and a 68-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of being in charge of a dangerously out of control dog in a public place.
