Newly unveiled video footage offers a harrowing glimpse into the aftermath of a dog attack that left three individuals injured.

West Midlands Police are actively investigating this incident, which unfolded over approximately two minutes at a Texaco petrol station in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, on a Saturday afternoon.

CCTV footage from the station captures the frantic attempts of several men trying to fend off and subdue a crossbreed Bully XL/Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy. The attack followed an earlier pursuit in which the dog chased an 11-year-old girl, leaving her with injuries to her shoulder and forearms.

Although the dog’s owner initially restrained the animal, it managed to break free once again. In the video, one of the men can be seen slipping and falling to the ground, only to have the dog attack his leg and shoulder. Other brave individuals rushed to his aid, using a variety of makeshift weapons, including shovels, brooms, sticks, and even a gas hose, to fend off the aggressive dog.

Local authorities reported that the injured girl received medical treatment at the hospital and is currently recuperating at home. A 20-year-old man who sustained bites on his shoulder and forearm, as well as cuts and bruises from being dragged across the garage forecourt, also sought medical attention. A second man later presented himself for treatment with similar injuries.

Police have revealed that the dog’s owner is currently hospitalized, and they plan to speak with him in the near future. Meanwhile, the dog was seized and taken to a veterinarian, where it was diagnosed with heat exhaustion. It has since been relocated to a secure kennel, where the dog unit will assess whether further action is necessary.
