Three dogs attack woman in Christchurch

An elderly Christchurch woman is recovering in hospital after being attacked by dogs.

The woman, in her 70s, was taken to Christchurch Hospital with serious injuries on Monday at 3:30pm, St John spokesperson Ian Henderson says.

The woman was at a property in Spreydon and attacked by three Shar Pei/Collie cross dogs. All three were registered and seized by Christchurch City Council. They will be held until a decision on prosecution is made.

A hospital spokesperson says the woman is still in hospital but "comfortable".

It comes after a spate of dog attacks, one where a young boy was bitten on the face.
