The game Nintendogs has been blamed for prompting a pet dog to attack a nine year old girl, ripping her upper lip apart.
According to the Daily Mail, the grandmother of nine year old Megan Walker has blamed Nintendogs, a video game title for the Nintendo DS, for causing her own pet bull mastiff to attack her granddaughter, biting her lip off.
The story suggests that the dog dragged the child from the couch by her foot when he heard a dog bark, which is said to have come from the game as soon as the girl began to play Nintendogs.
“I think this game should carry some kind of warning. People should be told not to play it when there are dogs in the room. I blame the game for what happened to Megan,” said the grandmother.
The dog has been put down by a vet after the owner labelled it as dangerous, while Megan is recovering at the hospital after surgery.
