PRINCESS Anne could be in hot water after her English bull terrier attacked a dog during a royal family pheasant shoot, an insider has claimed.
Royals were stunned when Anne’s pet appeared to sink its teeth into a gamekeeper’s dog and bit Sandringham’s ear.
Both dogs are believed to have survived, but there was “a lot of blood and screaming” at the Boxing Day shoot, The Sun can reveal.
A source said: “The Boxing Day shoot is a big family affair so Anne took her dog with her. It ran across the field straight at the gamekeeper’s dog and clung to his ear.
“The bull terrier has really worked hard.
“There was a lot of blood and a lot of screaming and a lot of screaming. It took a while to get the dog off his ear because he was really stuck.
“Everyone was fine in the end, but after that the atmosphere was extremely tense for a while.
“Some people have wondered what if it was Charlotte or George or one of the kids instead of another dog?”
The Princess Royal, 72, became the first royal to be convicted in court when she admitted a charge under the Dangerous Dogs Act 21 years ago.
Her English bull terrier named Dotty has bitten two children.
A year later, another of Anne’s terriers, named Florence, attacked one of the Queen’s corgis, which had to be euthanized.
Norfolk Police and the RSPCA have received no reports or complaints about the new alleged canine incident, The Sun understands.
