In what is surely up there on most people’s worst nightmare list, Sunrise presenter Samantha Armytage has been attacked by a dog while out walking on Monday afternoon.
Taking to Instagram following the ordeal, the 38-year-old TV personality wrote that the wound called for a trip to hospital and multiple injections.

"And that's a wrap on an afternoon I'd rather forget," Armytage began, continuing, "One Doberman attack + one police station visit + one Tetanus shot (with added whooping cough booster) + antibiotics = a few very stressful hours (& I didn't even get to finish my afternoon walk!)"

From there, the frustration and emotion Armytage had experienced through the attack became evident, with her continuing, "IF YOU HAVE AN AGGRESSIVE DOG, KEEP IT AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC (my shock is now turning to anger!) This could have been so much worse. There was a toddler walking just near me when I was attacked. Thank god it was me, not him."
