A teenager from Tucumán, Argentina was attacked by her dog during a photoshoot. Because of the incident, the girl needed 40 stitches on her face and inside her mouth.
Dogs are known to be man’s best friends, but sometimes their instincts take over and their actions become unpredictable.
Lara Sanson was having a very nice photoshoot with her dog, Kenai. She had the animal for a very long time, so she could never imagine that something like this would ever happen. During the time when the teenager was taking the pictures, her beautiful German Shepherd started bitting her face. The pictures captured the exact moment in time as Kenai’s teeth pierced Lara’s skin.
Up to this day, Lara couldn’t find the reason behind this incident: “I do not know if I touched its hip or if it reacted like this because it is old, or it was because I hugged it and scared it.”
The result of the attack was tragic: the girl suffered so many injuries that had to undergo a two-hour operation on her face. 40 stitches were needed because she has serious wounds on her skin and inside her mouth. Luckily, at 17 years old, she is still very young and her recovery was very fast.
A specialist opinion was needed in this matter, so a local vet was required to analyze this incident. According to him, the dog was very old and it is possible that the attack to be a reaction to the pain it feels: “Its pains are growing and pain could have generated this reaction.”
