Man bitten by Border Collie when walking through Chichester field

The Argus: Man bitten by Border Collie when walking through Chichester field Man bitten by Border Collie when walking through Chichester field

A man suffered a puncture wound when a Border Collie bit through his wellington boot.

The victim was working in fields off Newlands Lane close to the bridge over the old railway line in Centurian Way at about 4pm on November 21 when the black and white dog ran up to him and bit him on his left calf.

The victim tried to shake the dog off but it only let go when the apparent owner approached and called it off.

The woman owner then walked off under the bridge.

She is described as white, aged between 40 and 50 and 5' 7".

Anyone with any information about the dog and its owner is asked to contact police on 101 quoting serial 1105 of 21/11 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk.

Border Collies are not aggressive dogs, and they certainly don't randomly bite someone unless under threat or attack. Methinks there's more to this story....

I beg to differ.
We had a rescue border collie who was completely mad.
Indoors, he was the best dog in the world but outside the front door he was dangerous. He would unexpectedly launch himself at people and snap at them. He couldn't go anywhere without a muzzle and could never be let off his lead. We used to take him out at night so he came across less people. In the beginning he would snap at people calves.
One day a workman let him out and he bit someone.
We tried training, animal behaviorists, everything but he didn't get any better if anything he got worse.
In the end we had to admit defeat and return him to the rescue centre. That was 5 years ago but it's possible it's the same dog.
