Seven-Year-Old Boy Undergoes Facial Reconstruction After Dog Attack

A seven-year-old Chinhoyi boy recently underwent facial reconstruction surgery following an attack by three pit-bull dogs in the town’s suburb of Mapako.

Samuel Phineus sustained serious face and leg injuries during the attack and had to receive a mini-facial reconstruction through 21 stitches at Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital where he is still being attended to.

Tendai Phineus (39), his unemployed father, revealed that the matter has resulted in him losing a lot of money. He said:

_Since he was attacked on 17 June, we have parted ways with over US$270 for his medical bills and transportation._

_The owner of the dogs has only offered US$60 and $1 500 and has since started giving me cold shoulders because I reported the incident to the police._

Samuel Phineus was attacked while coming from her grandmother’s house which is opposite the residence of Mr Mugari, the owner of the dogs.
