Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a dangerous dog incident in High Wycombe.
At around 2pm on Wednesday (1/3), the victim, a woman in her fifties, was walking her Siberian husky off the lead with a friend in the field between Hawthorne Road and Herbert Road.
At the opposite end of the field, a man was walking his two dogs off the lead; a Staffordshire bull terrier and an XL bully.
The man put his dogs on the lead when he saw the victim and her friend and the dogs approached each other with no issues.
The man then shouted at the victim to put her dogs on the lead and got verbally abusive.
All three dogs then started to fight; the victim tried to intervene and ended up laying on top of her dog to protect it.
The victim sustained three serious dog bites on her leg and arm, which resulted in her in spending four days in hospital.
The man with the two dogs is described as white, approximately 5ft 6ins tall, aged around 20-25, of average build and had a Polish accent.
Investigating officer PC Amy Gliddon said: “I am appealing for any witnesses to this incident or anyone with information to please come forward.
“Also, if you have any CCTV footage in the area or any dash-cam footage if you were driving in the area around the time, I’d also ask that you check any recordings in case it has captured something that could assist our investigation.
“To contact us, call 101 or make a report on our website, quoting reference number 43230096164.
“Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via its website.”
