AN AMERICAN Bulldog which was "dangerously out of control" and reported to have attacked two Labradors has been seized.

The bulldog left two Labradors needing veterinary treatment after two separate attacks.

An assistance dog suffered a puncture wound to its neck and muscular injuries during the first incident at 1.55pm on September 1.

The dog's 31-year-old owner also received injuries to her hands as she tried to separate the dogs at the Brighton Hill Sports Pavilion in Gershwin Road, Basingstoke.

The second incident happened between 6.45am and 7.15am in Hatch Warren Way.

The 32-year-old owner was walking her Labrador when it was attacked by the other dog which was off the lead.

It sustained bites to its neck which also required treatment by a vet.

Police have since seized a dog that is alleged to have been dangerously out of control in a public place.

A police spokesperson said: "The animal has been confirmed to be an American Bulldog - not a prohibited breed.

"If you have any information about these incidents, please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting reference 44200336372."

The seized dog currently remains in secure kennels. Its owner is due to be interviewed in due course.
