An Iowa woman whose nose was severely injured by an attacking dog says her husband bit the animal to make it stop its assault.

Caren and Laine Henry say a 50-pound Labrador mix ran out of a yard near Laine's father's home in rural Madrid on Sunday to attack the couple while they were walking their pet beagle.

Caren Henry says the dog bit her abdomen and right thigh, scratched at her eyes, then clamped onto her nose, tearing it off. She says her husband was bit on an arm when he tried to help her.

Caren Henry says Laine "finally had to bite the dog in its nose, and it let loose."

The county doesn't have a vicious-dog ordinance.
