Five holidaymakers injured – including one man seriously wounded – in savage dog attack at Kinmel Bay caravan park | The Sun

FIVE holidaymakers were injured in a savage dog attack at a family caravan park.

One man was seriously wounded by dog bites and taken to hospital for urgent treatment with four others treated on site for minor injuries.

Police were called to the holiday park in a series of 999 calls from the park after the dog began attacking people away for the weekend away on the North Wales coast.

Officers seized the dog but said it is not believed to be a Bully XL at Palins Holiday Park, in Kinmel Bay, North Wales.

The attack took place just after 10pm on Friday before two men, aged 58 and 28, were arrested.

DS Jon Rich, of North Wales Police, said: “Our enquiries are ongoing but I would like to reassure the public that we are not seeking anyone else in connection with this incident.
