Terrifying Dog Attack on 11-Year-Old Victim

Ana Paun, an 11-year-old girl, described her harrowing experience after being attacked by an American bully XL and Staffordshire bull terrier crossbreed puppy in Bordesley Green, Birmingham. The incident occurred on a Saturday, resulting in severe injuries to Ana’s arm and shoulder. Two other individuals were also injured when the dog broke free from its collar on two occasions.

Ana’s Terrifying Account

Ana shared her terrifying ordeal with Sky News and BBC News. She recounted how she felt terrorized as the dog jumped on her arm and bit her. Despite her screams, the dog continued to stay on her arm. Ana described the moment when the dog, fixated on her, caused her to run, but she was caught and moved about by the aggressive animal. Eventually, someone managed to intervene and remove the dog from her hand, but it subsequently bit her shoulder. Ana expressed her panic, fear, and frustration, emphasizing the importance of responsible dog ownership.

Hospitalization and Recovery

Following the attack, Ana was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, requiring approximately eight stitches. Her mother, Monica Paun, described the traumatic incident and her daughter’s distress. Ana spent a night in the hospital and is now at home recovering. She has been prescribed antibiotics to aid her recovery.

Investigation and Breed Concerns

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident, but West Midlands Police indicated that they will speak to the dog’s owner when they are available, as they are currently hospitalized. The alarming nature of the attack prompted Home Secretary Suella Braverman to seek urgent advice on whether the breed, American bully XL, should be banned. Downing Street stressed the government’s commitment to addressing dangerous dogs and ensuring public safety under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Call for Action and Concerns Over Delay

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer expressed support for potentially banning the breed, acknowledging the shocking nature of the attack and the need for action. However, concerns have been raised regarding the feasibility and potential consequences of such a ban. Emma Whitfield, whose son was fatally attacked by a bully XL two years ago, criticized the delay in taking action and called for decisive measures to prevent further incidents.
