Brewers Yard web

A man was 'dragged on the ground' during a dog attack in Southminster that left him with serious arm injuries.
Police were called to Brewers Yard just after 2.30pm on Monday, September 5 where the man, aged in his 50s, was bitten by the animal.
The dog, which is believed to be a ROTTWEILER CROSSED WITH A BULLMASTIFF, has been seized by police and placed into kennels.
A resident, who lives on High Street and overlooks Brewers Yard, said: "I heard a bit of a commotion and I saw this dog was dragging this older guy on the ground outside this front door.
"It was unfrenzied - it was as if it didn't like the fella it attacked.
"The police were called and the ambulance was here.
"I could see that there was blood involved and the ambulance crew were there a fair while.
"Previously I saw a young guy getting attacked by this dog.
"It was very surprising to see the dog was back, because it literally was standing up on this young guy."
Another resident, who lives nearby but did not want to be named, said that the dog did not show any signs of aggression.
"The dog was very friendly and it let us stroke it," he said.
"It was a shock to hear that it was involved in an incident."
Workers in The Olive Branch said they saw a Police Community Support Officer on their radio outside, but did not see any tape cordoning off the area.
An Essex Police spokeswoman said: "A 28-year-old woman from Maldon has been voluntarily interviewed. Enquiries are ongoing."​

Hmm??? There's at least 2 witnesses saying they saw the dog attacking people. And one fool (storyteller) saying the dog is gentle enough to let you stroke it.
When will the Pitbull/bully breed lovers realize they've dodged a bullet instead of always arguing against the animals' violence?
