In a public Facebook post by Chanel Nicole Fong, she says she was with her father-in-law - Keven Jones - when he died, something she describes as the "worst day" of her life.

The post adds that, as she was preparing to leave the house, Ms Fong noticed blood coming from Mr Jones' leg and grabbed the dog's blanket to help put pressure on the wound before calling for an ambulance.

Paramedics were said to have spent 45 minutes trying to save Mr Jones' life, but he later died at the scene. 

In her post, Ms Fong wrote: "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.

"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 Keven's blood off my hands and all I can hear in my head is Cookie's cries.

"Cookie did not attack Keven, he’s a big boy and plays too rough. Please respect Josh and his family, myself and my family at this absolutely heart breaking time.

"Cookie was euthanised 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 in bed."

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: "An investigation into this incident remains ongoing and officers are liaising with the family of the deceased."
