The facts happened on August 20, at the end of the afternoon, in Noyen-sur-Sarthe, south-west of Le Mans. A 15-year-old girl was riding a scooter with a friend when three unleashed mastiffs pounced on her, biting her fifteen times.
A young man had tried to help him and had also been bitten several times in the leg. Covered in blood by the emergency services, seriously injured, the young girl had to undergo several operations
