Woman has ear partially bitten off by dog

A WOMAN has been attacked by a dog outside her Goonellabah home overnight, resulting in the top of her ear being bitten off.

The 46-year-old woman was in her front yard checking her mailbox about 9pm last night when she was attacked by the dog.

The dog approached her and without provocation attacked, the police said.

The woman fell to the ground and the dog bit her right ear which caused part of the top of the ear to rip off.

Her screams alerted her partner who ran out of the house to render assistance and caused the dog to run away. 

Police were called but were not able to locate the dog, which has been described as a brown bull mastiff (or similar looking breed), brown in colour, no collar and approximately 3 years old.

Information suggests it may come from Allingham Place.

If anyone has information in regards to dangerous dogs please contact your local council.
