Postman describes pit bull dog attack


Postman Paul Coleman has described how he was set upon by two pit bull type dogs while on his delivery round in Sheffield.

The dogs were not on leads when the attack happened, and only stopped when the police arrived.

Under government proposals to tackle dangerous breeds, police and local councils could get new powers to force the owners of dangerous dogs to muzzle them or even get them neutered.
