Travis singer Fran Healy has shown off his wounds after an unexpected attack by a sausage dog in the Hollywood Hills.
The 48-year-old singer admitted he was still sore from the ‘bloody’ attack after he tried to be a good samaritan and rescue the pooch.
But the dog unexpectedly ‘mauled’ him as it tried to flee from his grasp.
The sausage dog left a gaping wound in the singer’s hand which he claims was gushing blood.
He said: ‘I was driving down my hill and as I rounded a corner there were 3 cars jackknifed and from the middle of the chaos ran a daschund.
So I jumped out and chased it up the hill. Cars bomb down our hill and it would have been toast. So I tried to pick it up and it mauled the s*** out my left hand.
“I held on, hoping to chuck it into our porch but then I slipped and it bolted off, leaving me p***ing blood all over the shop. So much blood.”
Concerned neighbours called emergency services and Fran ended up in hospital so his wounds could be bandaged up.
Showing off his injuries Fran explained: “Then all the neighbours came out and one of them called an ambulance. I ran into the house and poured alcohol over the wounds… then I came out but it wasn’t an ambulance… it was a massive fire engine.”
“…And I have to say, 5 Calvin Klein models got out and then I’m telling them about the daschund and they suggested urgent care… by this time there was about 20 cars waiting to pass, I’m p***ing blood (by the way ladies and some boys… I totally now get the fireman thing).
“Anyways I drove to Urgent Care on Selma and they cleaned me up good and now I’m here and my finger is patched up and bloody sore.”
The dog also survived the ordeal and it turned out it lived in Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks old house.
Fran said: “The dog… is fine. Was cornered at the bottom of the hill and the owner, who lives in Stevie Nicks old house (pop pickers), was reunited.
Fran joked ‘please don’t make the headline “Travis Singer Mauled by Sausage Dog in Hollywood Hills”’
Er that might be too late.
