A man walking his German Shepherd dog has been involved in an attack with two West Highland terriers wearing red checked bandanas.

The incident happened at around 4.30pm on Tuesday, November 24, while the 53-year-old victim was walking his dog along Cragg Road, Mytholmroyd.

As he has reached the junction of Elphaborough Close, two West Highland terriers being walked by a child jumped up at the victim and his dog. One of the dogs bit the man to his knee causing a puncture wound.
