Jonathan Hogg Wiki – Jonathan Hogg Biography
Jonathan Hogg, 37, a man has died after being attacked by a “dangerously out of control” dog in Leigh.
Mr. Hogg was found by officers on Westleigh Lane in the Greater Manchester town with serious injuries shortly after 9.10 pm on Thursday. He was taken to hospital where he died in the early hours of Friday. In a statement released by Greater Manchester Police (GMP), Mr. Hogg’s family said: “Jonathan was a well-loved, sensitive, and kind person who will never know how loved and appreciated he was by everyone who knew him.”
His brother Ian Hogg had earlier posted on Facebook: “Can’t believe I am writing this but rest easy kid. “Heartbroken isn’t the word. Didn’t want to leave you this morning. Love you, brother.” Keith Gannon, a friend of Mr. Hogg, wrote in a tribute: “So saddened to hear this Ian, had some great fun times over the years with (Mr Hogg). “Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family RIP Hoggy.” Another friend, Gareth Thornley, wrote: “Sorry for your loss mate, gonna miss his unexpected visits, rest easy Johnathan (sic), see you on the flip side brava.” GMP said armed officers were deployed to try to control the dog and used “every available tactic to subdue” the animal before it was destroyed because it posed a “significant risk” to the public.
Jonathan Hogg was 37 years old.
