An 11-year-old girl was left needing emergency medical treatment after being bitten by a dog as she walked home from school.
Police have this morning (Monday) issued an appeal for witnesses after the incident near to the traffic lights in Walford Avenue in Worle on November 15.
The girl was returning home from school at about 4.15pm when a brown dog, with long fur, bit her on the leg.
Four women who were with the dog then walked off, without stopping to see whether the girl was badly hurt or even apologise.
The youngster was left needing treatment at Weston General Hospital’s accident and emergency department.
A police spokesman said: “We’re looking for witnesses after an 11-year-old girl was bitten by a dog while out in Weston.
“We would like to speak to anyone who might have seen the incident or has information. If you can help, call 101 (ref 5217262122).”
