A woman who was mauled so violently by a giant dog that her body looked like “chewed meat” wants the Bully Kutta breed to be banned from the UK.

The victim, who does not want to be identified, is still recovering from the assault eight months later, having spent nearly a month in hospital undergoing skin grafts, stitches and intense rehabilitation to allow her to walk again.

She still has no feeling below the knee, experiences needles every day and will have to live with post-traumatic stress and lifelong scarring.

After the woman from Blackburn, Lancashire, was attacked by the animal – which usually grows to around 3ft tall and weighs 14 stone – she said she felt “scarred” in every way.

It took her several months to build up the courage to walk the two small dogs she was with when the Bully went berserk.

As well as campaigning to have the aggressive breed added to the list of dogs banned in the UK, she claims she has not heard from the police since the attack about whether any charges will be brought against the owner.

She said: ‘Why aren’t the police doing more? Why are people still allowed to own such dogs?

“Recently two very young children have been killed in different parts of the country due to dog attacks and something needs to be done or it will happen again.

“I was very lucky. If I had not intended to turn my back on that dog when it came furiously at me, I have no doubt that it would have killed me.

“It grabbed my leg and wouldn’t let go. The only way I can describe it is to say it’s like it had a piece of meat in its mouth and it was trying to chew its way to the bone.’

A bite on the right thigh was so deep that it cut through several nerves and destroyed muscle tissue.

It is understood the dog was seized by police three days later and is believed to still be in their kennels.

The victim asked: ‘What has been done to the dog? I have not heard anything from the police about whether the woman who owns the dog has been prosecuted, or whether the dog has been destroyed or will be able to be released back to its owner.

“Why should we as taxpayers pay to look after this animal? Something has to be done.

“The law must be changed. The council needs stricter licenses and the police need to do more.

“Just recently a little boy was killed by a dangerous dog in Milnrow, Rochdale.

“If this dog is allowed back to its owner, what happens when it kills another dog? Or a child?

“This attack has left me with serious physical scars, but it has been traumatizing for me.

“It’s affected me mentally a lot more than I thought it would, and it’s been terrifying.”

Banned dog breeds currently include the American Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and Fila Brasileiro.

The Bully Kutta, mainly used for hunting or guarding in the Indian subcontinent, is usually around 2.6 feet tall, with males weighing up to 14 stone.

Their temperament is described as ‘aggressive, intelligent, energetic, responsive, alert and protective’, with dog information website The Smart
Canine describes the breed as “huge, aggressive and dangerous”.

Two days after the woman was attacked, the same dog struck again – attacking a spaniel that was trampled in the same area by a 52-year-old woman, who also declined to be identified.

According to Lancashire Police, the incident is still under investigation and the dog is still in police kennels.

It is not known whether the RSPCA has been involved, nor is there any indication that the animal will be destroyed.
