Man’s flesh ripped to the BONE after ferocious Staffordshire terriers maul dog and left OAP owner covered in blood
A HERO passerby had his flesh ripped to the bone when he tried to save an OAP's dog from being mauled in the park.
Jan Majer, 33, ran to rescue Michael Campbell's pooch Bo as he was attacked by two Staffordshire Bull Terriers earlier this month.
Michael, 80, tried to save French Bull Tzu, Bo, during their walk in Birkenhead Park, Wirral, himself – but was forced to retreat when the Staffies started biting and scratching him.
He was instead forced to watch in horror as the "out of control" animals "ripped apart" his six-year-old dog.
Michael's daughter Denise told The Mirror: "He went over to pick Bo up and fell over. They were jumping on him and trying to get past him to Bo, who he was protecting.
"He had bites all over him and scratches on his face. The Staffies then started mauling Bo, ripping him apart in front of my dad.

"This guy then ran over and managed to get Bo away from the dogs. He lifted him up and tried to put him on his shoulder but the dogs then started attacking him.
"They bit his leg to get to Bo… You could see his bone on his leg. He will be scarred for life."
Good Samaritan Jan, from Birkenhead, told The Mirror he came to help after he heard Bo squealing.
He said when he picked him up, the dogs jumped up and tried to reach Bo, with one biting Jan's hand and "hanging off" him.

He said: "The other bit my leg. It was very painful, it felt like someone was ripping my leg apart.
"What if it was a three-year-old kid and not me that was attacked – they could have killed the child."
Factory worker Jan was rushed to hospital after the ordeal and is now having to take time off due to his injuries.
Another passerby managed to pick Bo up and take him to a nearby police car after Jan's intervention.
Denise said cops drove Bo to the vets where they were told he was "pretty much dead" and "if he hadn't got there in time he wouldn't have survived".
Meanwhile owner Michael was left covered in blood and taken to hospital.
Bo had to stay at the vets for almost a week and Denise said her dad, whose hands are still bandaged, is absolutely "traumatised" by what happened.
Police were called to the scene and seized two dogs following the attack, which took place at around 11.45am.
The animals are being held by Merseyside Police while they continue to investigate.
A police spokesperson said: "Police attended the scene, both victims were taken to hospital for their injuries and are recovering from the incident.
"The small dog was taken for veterinary treatment.
"Officers have seized the two Staffordshire Bull Terriers and their two owners will attend for police interviews at a later date."
Community Policing Inspector Peter Rexwinkel, added: “Although Staffordshire Bull Terriers are not a banned breed, they were reportedly out of control in a public place and as such officers have seized the dogs and the owners will be attending an interview.
“Merseyside Police takes such incidents seriously and have a dedicated Sergeant who reviews all cases concerning dogs.
“Anyone walking their dog in our local parks need to be mindful of their dog’s behaviour at all times and keep their pet on a lead if it is liable to be aggressive towards other park users.
