A 1.5-meter-long, 3-year-old Tosa dog bit two people, seriously injuring them, in Matsubara City, Osaka, on Monday afternoon. The 23-year-old owner of the dog was arrested and charged with negligence, police said Tuesday.
Police said the dog's owner, Akitoyo Sera, who owns five Tosa dogs, forgot to lock the cage. One dog escaped and bit a 9-year-old boy and a 23-year-old postman around 4:55 p.m. on the street. The two victims were taken to hospital. The boy suffered heavy injuries to his neck, chin and stomach, while the postman suffered minor injuries on his arms.
Sera captured his dog about 15 minutes later, police said.© Japan Today
