Gera (dpa/th) - Several people were injured by dog bites in Gera over the weekend. For example, a 53-year-old was bitten on Sunday night at the main station when he tried to separate his dog from the four-legged friend of a 35-year-old, who had attacked each other, the police said. A Deutsche Bahn employee who wanted to help also suffered injuries.
On Saturday, a 68-year-old and a 19-year-old were bitten by their animals, who had previously attacked each other. Since the man's dog broke free during a walk and attacked the young woman's animal, he is now being investigated for negligent bodily harm.
