Neighbour saves girls from dogs

Two young girls being mauled by a pair of vicious dogs running loose were saved by neighbours who beat the animals with a baseball bat.

CALGARY — Two young girls being mauled by a pair of vicious dogs running loose were saved by neighbours who beat the animals with a baseball bat.

Bhajan Mahal says he was walking home from a park Wednesday night with his three- and four-year-old granddaughters when the dogs attacked from behind and began biting the girls’ legs and shoulders.

“I was trying to grab the kids. I was scared,” Mahal said. “There was so much bleeding, so much. I was also crying.”

The girls were taken to hospital where they were listed as stable. Another man who was also attacked by the same dogs earlier was treated by paramedics.

“He was on the ground. (The dogs) were clinging on his arm,” said witness Steve Matte. “It’s unreal. I never saw that mean of a dog.”

Matte hit one of the dogs across the head with a steel bar when they started threatening his neighbour and then himself.

He then chased the dogs in his truck as they headed towards a playground full of children. He screamed at parents to get their kids out before he came across the two girls.
