Elderly man attacked by dog at Little Mountain

BREAKING: Just 24-hours after a dog attack at Buderim, another one has occurred at Little Mountain.

A police spokeswoman said the man was attacked at 10.20am.

It's believed, a German Shepherd has attacked a man aged  in his 80s.

A Queensland Ambulance Spokesman said the man was being treated for bites to the leg.

Sunshine Coast Council will seize the dog while an investigation is launched.

Yesterday, the council said it would take a heavy hand toward irresponsible dog owners after three dogs mauled a pomeranian cross mini foxie to death at Buderim. 

This was the 37th dog attack in four weeks.

More to come.
