LITHGOW police used OC spray on a dog to subdue it after an attack on a woman and her dog on Mort Street, Saturday.
The 50-year-old woman was walking her dog on a lead along Mort Street at around 9.10am when a dog pushed through a fence of a house on the street and attacked her dog. The dog also attempted to bite the woman.
Luckily a police patrol was driving by and responded to the women’s situation.
The OC spray was used but it did not prevent the woman from receiving a bite on her hand from the dog.
The matter was referred to Lithgow Council rangers.
