Police officers are trying to find the owner of a dog after a nine-year-old boy was bitten in a park.
The incident happened at around 11.45am on Thursday, March 9, in the Brynhafod park in Maserfield, Oswestry.
The dog owner is described as being a woman in her 40s, around 5ft 6ins tall, with shoulder length dark blonde hair. She was said to be warning a long, dark-coloured puffa coat and carrying a yellow hiking pole, and in company with several children.
The boy was bitten by a small light brown dog, possibly a chihuahua or similar, which was off the lead at the time.
