Yeah its a cute bully in the pic. It didnt say why he hasnt reported it though which makes me wonder a little...He only said that it could be a kid next time *gah*
I was looking for another article too, couldnt find it though, where a French Bullterrier was attacked and almost killed like a week ago in the same area down south in Sweden. The pit owner apparently even tried biting his dogs ear in order for it to let go, but it didnt!
On a separate note:
Yeah leeches are very common, well in Sweden atleast. Mainly for hand and feet surgery to get the blood flowing so that the body will rebuild bloodvessels and keep the tissue or piece alive
Its veeeeery efficent!
