A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers attended the scene and located the dog and its owner. The owner subsequently agreed to put the dog down and return a vet’s certificate to the police as proof of its destruction.

“At the time of this agreement, all parties involved including the victim were happy with this course of action.”

The dog has been put down since Sunday’s attack.
