LEEDS ENGLAND - A 73-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS ON A WALK WHEN SHE WAS AMBUSHED BY A MONSTER PIT BULL THAT CHOMPED DOWN ON HER ARM AND DRAGGED HER INTO A POND ...IT TOOK 5 MEN WORKING NEARBY THAT HEARD HER SCREAMS AND GOT IT OFF OF HER!!!

A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of having a dangerous dog. The man was released without charge under investigation and the American pit bull cross is being held in a police compound until the conclusion of any potential legal proceedings (the dog in question is pictured)
An elderly woman has revealed the horrifying injuries suffered when a 'monster' dog leaped from bushes and dragged her into a pond 'like a lion attacking an antelope.'
Retired cleaner Mary Rollinson, 73, who lives in Leeds, was walking in woods near her home in August when a huge  AMERICAN PIT BULL CROSS  rampaged through the undergrowth and took her right arm in its jaws.
The back of Mary's right arm was ripped apart from shoulder to elbow and as she flailed to try to fight the animal off it seized her left middle finger and bit off the top.
Her partner, retired trucker Trevor Cornwell, 71, said she would have been killed if a group of workmen on a nearby industrial estate at Yeadon, Leeds, hadn't heard her terrified screams.

It took five men to beat the dog off Mary and drag her out from underneath it.
She has spent the last six weeks since the August 27 attack in Leeds General Infirmary and has undergone multiple skin grafts to injuries that will never fully heal.
Mother-of-one Mary was so traumatised by the attack that she has been left with no memory of what happened to her.
She said: 'It was a lovely quiet day and something made me turn around to go home.
'I saw it out of the corner of my eye and apart from that I can't remember anything. The hospital told me it was the body's self defence mechanism kicking in because of the trauma.
'I can't thank the men who saved me enough for what they did, they were so brave and they saved my life.'
Trevor said: 'I had been doing some gardening at home and Mary decided to go off for a walk around the woods and this thing came at her through the bushes and brought her to the ground.
'It dragged her off the path and into a pond and I'm sure that if those guys hadn't heard her screams it would have killed her, it was completely berserk.
'The injuries it caused are horrific, not like anything I have ever seen from a dog attack.

'One of the men who saved her caught it on video as he held it at bay with a stick and it was massive, just solid muscle and very very aggressive, she never stood a chance.
'It took off a large part of the back of her right arm. The surgeons have done their best with skin grafts, some were successful; and other weren't.
'But the agony she has been through and trauma of that will always stay with her, I'm just doing my best to look after her, it's a miracle she's still here.
'We're dog owners ourselves, we have a black labrador, but it's beyond me why anyone would want to keep a dog like that, it was an absolute monster.
'It took five men to beat the thing off her, all five of them, and if they hadn't it would have been an even more terrible outcome.'
The modest heroes who saved Mary's life declined to be named, but one of them said: 'I have never seen injuries like that from a dog attack. I can only liken it to a lion pulling an antelope about, it really was horrific.
'There were five of us in the end trying to hit the dog off with sticks but it wasn't moving at all.
'It was my colleague in the end who decided a better way rather than hitting it was to put the stick in front of it to try to get it to take the stick.'
His colleague said: 'I got the biggest stick I could and tried to push it away. The dog took hold of the end of the stick and it allowed my colleagues to pull her out.'
A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of having a dangerous dog.
The man was released without charge under investigation and the dog is being held in a police compound until the conclusion of any potential legal proceedings.

An elderly woman who was brutally attacked by an  AMERICAN PIT BULL  and had her arm nearly ripped out has recalled the horrific incident and expressed thanks to the heroic workers who saved her life.
Mary Rollinson, 73, of Leeds, was walking along the Engine Fields in Yeadon on August 27 when a massive American pit bull jumped out from the bushes and ambushed her, grabbing her by her right arm, according to the Mirror.
The force of the bite saw the back of her arm ripped from shoulder to elbow, and as she desperately tried to fight it off, it caught her middle finger and bit off the top.
She luckily survived after her terrified screams were heard by a group of five workmen on a nearby industrial site who intervened and managed to chase the beastly dog away.
She spent the next six weeks at the Leeds General Infirmary recovering and underwent multiple skin grafts to treat her injuries, some of which doctors said would never heal.
Furthermore, she has been left so traumatized by the attack that she has no recollection of what happened to her.
She said she vaguely remembered seeing the dog from the corner of the eye before the attack, but that everything beyond that point was a blank. "I can't thank the men who saved me enough for what they did, they were very brave," she said.
Her partner, Trevor Cornwell, on the other hand, will never forget that fateful day when he almost lost her. "It dragged her off the path and into a pond and I'm sure that if those guys hadn't heard her screams it would have killed her, it was completely berserk," he said. 
"The injuries it caused are horrific, not like anything I have ever seen from a dog attack," he continued. "One of the men who saved her caught it on video as he held it at bay with a stick and it was massive, just solid muscle and very, very aggressive. She never stood a chance."
He added that it was a "miracle" she was still alive and that, being dog owners themselves, it was beyond him how anyone would willingly keep "an absolute monster" like that pit bull. "It took five men to beat the thing off her, all five of them, and if they hadn't, it would have been an even more terrible outcome."
A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of having a dangerous dog but later released without charge. However, he is still under investigation and the dog is being held in a police compound until the conclusion of any potential legal proceedings.
