A DOG owner is being hunted after her pet attacked a child in a park in Lockerbie.

The 11-year-old girl was playing in the town’s McJerrow Park at around 1.40pm on Sunday when the dog repeatedly bit her on both legs.

The brown and white animal, which the victim described as being a Staffordshire bull terrier type dog, was taken away by a woman who is described as being in her mid to late 20s, about 5’ 5” tall and was wearing a white coloured fleece.

The girl was treated in Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary for the bites.
