Former French President Chirac hospitalised after mauling by his clinically depressed poodle
Former French president Jacques Chirac was rushed to hospital after being mauled by his own 'clinically depressed' pet dog.
The 76-year-old statesman was savaged by his white Maltese dog - which suffers from frenzied fits and is being treated with anti-depressants.
The animal, named Sumo, had become increasingly violent over the past years and was prone to making 'vicious, unprovoked attacks', Chirac's wife Bernadette said.
OK I'm not wishing any harm on any one. But this is too damn funny not to laugh at. I could sneeze and blow that dog away. It must have been a terrifying moment for Chirac when the dog attacked and would halt to the white flag.
