A police constable is reported to be undergoing therapy after Helen Zille's dog allegedly attacked her in October 2017.
The officer, 34, was guarding Zille's home when the rottweiler is said to have attacked her. She injured her wrist and knee as she tried to escape the dog, according to a report by TimesLIVE.
It is also reported that the officer had to undergo surgery as a result of the attack and she still needs to take medication.
Two other officers also claim that they had to evade Zille's canines and even once had to shoot off a warning shot to get rid of them. This is according to the police union's leaders.
However, Zille says the officers were scared of the dogs despite having no reason for it.
Our dogs have never attacked anyone on these premises.
Briefly.co.za gathered from a social media post that Zille is adamant that her dog did not attack the officer and will share her side of the story soon:
