An older woman was left with horrific injuries after being attacked by a poodle.
The 78-year-old is still in the hospital after undergoing two skin transplants following the attack in Sandy Bay, Tasmania last Thursday.
The woman and her two daughters walked down the street when they saw two poodles tied up in front of a store.
Jane Clarke of the woman's daughter said she watched as the larger dog attacked her mother and bit her on the right leg under the calf.

& # 39; It has just pulled a piece off its leg, & # 39; said Mrs. Clarke The Mercury.
Mrs. Clarke said her mother's wound was bleeding heavily in anticipation of paramedics.
The owner of the dog returned and offered to pay any handling costs.
Mrs. Clarke said the municipality was initially helpful, but earlier this week the family discovered that the dog would be released to the owner.
& # 39; The dog is free to roam the streets. We live in Sandy Bay, we're going to see this guy in the future, and I just think it's horrible that his dog is free to walk around and attack people, "she said.
A business owner who saw the cruel attack said the poodles had been tied up without water for more than an hour.
& # 39; It was really pretty fierce. The dog didn't just go once, he went a few times. And that's why the injury is so ugly, & she said.
Hobart City Council has confirmed that they are investigating the attack, although the dog's whereabouts are unknown.
