A 62-year-old man was severely injured after two dogs savagely mangled his arm on June 12.The doctors from Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery who treated Thomas Krengel, who almost lost his right arm after dogs attacked him, said it is the worst dog bite that they have seen.
The attack happened on the north side of Des Moines when Krengel, who was staying on a friends’ house, was mauled when trying to get two copulating chow chows to go inside the house. The two dogs became agressive and attacked him after he tried to break them apart. The dogs mangled Krengel’s arm as he try to protect his throat.
Fortunately, doctors were able to preserve his arm.

Sioux City recently settled a lawsuit and paid a woman who was attacked by a police dog in 2009.
A settlement to pay Keisha Davis $6,500 was approved by the city council on March 25. According to a suit filed by Davis in December 2011 in Woodbury County District Court, she was at her home in December 2009 when four police came to arrest her then-husband Kevin Davis. Keisha Davis sustained injuries after a dog was released by Officer Noltze. She later filed charges against former police Chief Joe Frisbie, Chief Doug Young, and Officer Lori Noltze.
Sioux City attorney Nicole Jensen-Harris was not available for comment as of press time.
