It is 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6 when an 18-month-old girl was bitten at home by her dog in Lestrem, Pas-de-Calais. In absolute urgency, she is transported to the Lille CHR. According to information from our colleagues at Franc Bleu Nord, she is injured in the face and forearm.
The locked animal
The dog that bit the girl is an unrecognized species recently exported to Europe. He is an American wolfdog, not recognized as a domestic by the Central Canine Society. Only the Czechoslovakian wolfdog and the Sarloos wolfdog are recognized.
The animal was subsequently locked in a pen in the house.
