KSI’s brother’s dog Tank to be destroyed after mauling gran in horror attack

A GRAN was mauled in a savage attack by a German Shepherd owned by YouTube star KSI's brother.

Oladeji Olatunji's dog bit his elderly neighbour several times leaving her with "nasty injuries" in July, 2018.

The dog, called Tank, escaped and attacked the woman, who was collecting a parcel from Olatunji's home in Holme, near Peterborough.

It also bit her son-in-law, with Cambridge Crown Court ordering the dog must now be destroyed.

But Olatunji has begged KSI, who has almost 21 million followers, to help save Tank.

In a video on his YouTube channel, Olatunji said: "I'm going to be appealing to save Tank's life and I want you to just help me.

DOG MAULED NEIGHBOUR

"I want you to tell your friends, your family, everyone, anyone you know.

"I just want you to help me please because together we can save Tank, together we can save a life."

Olatunji and his mum Olayinka Olatunji, 53, who also lived at the property, failed to control the dog as it launched its attack.

It was finally dragged inside the house by Oladeji Olatunji's dad.

Judge David Farrell fined Oladeji Olatunji, £2,500 and ordered him to pay £5,845 in kennel costs.

Olayinka Olatunji admitted two counts of allowing a dog to be out of control in a public place.

She was sentenced to a 12-month community order with 80 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay £8,000 compensation to the victim and £2,082 in kennel costs.

They were both issued with a restraining order relating to the victims.

Pc Jemma Russell said: "This was, understandably, a frightening experience for the victim and her family.

"All dogs, big or small, can be dangerous if they are not properly trained and under control."

She said CCTV footage showed the family "didn't have control of Tank, who was behaving aggressively and roaming the street without a collar".
