Man attacked by four dogs in Brechin park

A man has been attacked by four dogs in a public park in Angus.

The 68-year-old was walking his dog in a park in Viewbank, Brechin, at about 14:00 on Thursday when he was attacked by four brindle Staffordshire bull terriers.

The man and his black and tan cocker spaniel were injured in the attack. Police have appealed for witnesses.

The four dogs were with a woman who was in her early 50s, of thin build, with grey or brown untidy hair.

Officers believe the attack may be linked to a similar incident which took place in Montrose on 3 February.
