Boy, 3, has surgery after Lincolnshire dog attack
A three-year-old boy who was mauled by a dog has had to have facial surgery.
Kirsty Taylor had taken her son Oscar to the Carrington Rally, a steam and heritage show near Boston, Lincolnshire on Monday, when the attack happened.
Oscar was bitten by a dog and had to have stitches in his cheek and chin on Tuesday but is now back at home in Tattershall.
Ms Taylor said: "I ran and grabbed him, covered in blood all over his face, all over me."
Oscar's stepdad Sean Mackmanamon said: "Oscar was watching the bikes and turned round to come back to his mum, he fell over and the dog pounced on him and started biting him."
Ms Taylor said: "I just ran with my child and found a paramedic."
Ms Taylor said she had been affected by the attack on her son.
"Wherever Oscar goes, I go. I won't let him go, I won't put him down.
"He'll be in a pram or I'll be holding him - I am cautious of him being around a dog."
His parents have called for dogs to be banned at public events to stop similar attacks.
Police are investigating the attack.
