Husband bites dog to stop attack, wife says

MADRID, Iowa – An Iowa woman whose nose was severely injured by an attacking dog says her husband bit the animal to make it stop assaulting her.

Caren and Laine Henry told The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/108DUsz ) on Thursday that a 50-pound Labrador mix ran out of a yard in rural Madrid on Sunday and attacked the couple while they were walking their pet beagle.

Caren Henry said the dog bit her abdomen and right thigh, scratched at her eyes, then clamped onto her nose, tearing it off. She said her husband was bitten on an arm when he tried to help her.

Caren Henry said her husband “finally had to bite the dog in its nose, and it let loose.”

The Register said the county doesn’t have a vicious-dog ordinance.
