Auckland Council is investigating after a schoolboy was jumped on by a German Shepherd dog yesterday.
The boy, 8, was at Edmonton Primary School in Te Atatu yesterday morning when a dog jumped on him and began pulling at his jacket.
A teacher pulled him away, but the boy suffered a large scratch across his left shoulder.
Council animal management manager, Geoff Keber, confirmed it had been called to the school.
He said paramedics also attended and a parent took the young boy home.
Two dogs were seized and taken to the Henderson Animal shelter.
An investigation is ongoing.
