Lara, 17, was with her best friend and his dog when the photoshoot turned into a nightmare. As she tells the Argentinian website La Nacion, this young woman from Tucuman was clearly not expecting to be hurt.

"I don't know if it's because I touched his hip and he's old and he reacted that way, or if it's because I hugged him and intimidated him," she says, and continued by stating the animal is usually very calm.

Horrifying wounds

On Twitter, Lara posted the photos of the unfortunate incident, getting more than 355,000 reactions. It has to be said that her injuries, which required more than 40 stitches were quite impressive.

However, according to a veterinarian also interviewed by La Nacion, if this dog had bitten her, "there is a reason". The animal's reaction would, according to the vet, be have been a way of defending itself.
