I would like to thank the friends and people unknown to me who came to my assistance when I was attacked by a dog near the corner of Dalley Street and Burringbar Street in Mullumbimby on Monday, 19 December.
I suffered a fractured wrist requiring surgery and the insertion of a metal plate and screws. I also suffered a fractured vertebrae that will require months of rehabilitation.
I’d like to also thank the police who attended the scene and the staff of the Mullumbimby Ambulance, Byron Bay Hospital and Tweed Hospital for their professionalism and care. 
Kelvin Davies, Mullumbimby
