A man who was killed in a dog attack in Wrexham has been named locally as his family describes “the worst day of their lives”.

Keven Jones went into cardiac arrest after he was bitten by the animal, called Cookie, which is believed to have been an American Bulldog type.

Keven’s son Josh’s partner Chanel Fong, who was there in Wrexham, North Wales, at the time for the attack, said she had watched “two men I love so much take their last breath”.

She described having Keven’s blood on her hands after giving him CPR and hearing the dog Cookie crying as he was put to sleep.

She wrote on Facebook: “I heard Kev say get off me Cookie… so I went into the kitchen, told Cookie to get down which he did.

“Anyone who has come into contact with Cookie knows how much of a big fat head play boy he is.

“He’s not aggressive in the slightest.

“Just thinks he’s still a small pup and bounces around rather than walk…”

She added: “Kev said he’s got me there and as I looked down there was blood pumping from Kev’s leg.

“I grabbed Cookie’s blanket from his crate to try and keep the wound from bleeding.

“I carried him to the sofa and called the ambulance.

“Kev was with me but unresponsive, he grabbed my shoulder and told me he was going.

“I told him he wasn’t and the call handler told me to lie him on the floor and do compressions.

“Seven minutes it took for the ambulance service to get to us.

“It felt like I was doing compressions for an hour.

“I want to thank North Wales ambulance service, air ambulance, North Wales Police and their special dog handling team.

“But after working on Keven for 45mins he didn’t take another breath.”

She added: “Today has been the worst day of my life.

“I have had to watch two men who I love so much take their last breath.

“I can’t shake the feeling of Kevin’s blood off my hands and all I can hear in my head is Cookie’s cries.

“Please respect Josh and his family, myself and my family at this absolutely heartbreaking time.

“Cookie was euthanized in the back garden by a trained vet and the other dogs were checked over by the dog handling team, our special girl Fire was taken as she has an athletic build however the rest they were happy with and they are all tucked up inbed.

“Rest in peace my darling stupid boy Cookie-Doe and forever rest in peace with a beer my amazing father in law Keven Jones AKA Odde.”

One resident said he woke up at around 11.30am to the sound of a man screaming and growls.

He said: “I heard what I thought was a dog attacking a man.

“I heard the man screaming, not blood curdling.

A police spokeswoman said: “The dog was securely contained at the property and was euthanized by a vet.

“Other dogs kept at the property will be temporarily kenneled whilst inquiries are ongoing.”
