The woman was bitten on the hand before West Yorkshire Police were called.

Officers managed to get the dog, described as a family pet, under control before taking it away.

The alarmed population had called the police.

The victims’ injuries were described as serious but not life-changing.

Police said they were called just before 1pm after a dog reportedly attacked people in the back yard of a house.

Police told Sun Online tonight: “Officers were at the address where an adult woman sustained a bite wound to the hand and a man sustained a severe bite wound to the leg.”

“A child who was present had also suffered a serious bite injury.

“All were taken to hospital for treatment of their injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.”

“The dog was safe on the property and was confiscated.”

Police previously said the dog was a “family pet described as a pit bull type.”
