A distraught mother has gone to the press for help after her 11 year old son was savaged by a pit bull terrier that got loose from a restaurant in Chiang Mai.
Wiraphop "Nong Saeng" Chiangtung was happily playing with friends in a car park near "The Fusion" construction site in Muang district where he is living.
The dog went for his face ripping a gash in his mouth before locals managed to chase the vicious beast away.
The boy needed 17 stitches.
The owner of the restaurant paid 3,000 baht but mother Jia Chiangtung has racked up bills of 14,000 baht since the unprovoked attack on Saturday.

She wants the dog - one of two pit bulls kept tied up outside the restaurant - to be kept somewhere else.
She told Daily News the dog had only been there a week and no one felt self, especially her traumatized son.
Daily News saw the dogs tied up outside yesterday but the restaurant was all quiet when they called and knocked. However, after interviewing the mother they went back and the dogs had been put inside the closed restaurant.
Jia is set to file a complaint with the Chang Pheuak police over the matter.
