SHOCKED High-Street shoppers have described the "gut-wrenchingly sickening" moment a dog was injured after plummeting from a Sidmouth window- nearly hitting a pedestrian.
Onlookers were stunned last Friday morning as the canine plunged from a first-floor High Street property, and concerned as blood dripped from the animal's mouth after it landed.
A witness, who did not want to be named, said: "I couldn't believe it, I was just about to go into Somerfield, when it came out of the window, just like a model dog with its feet straight down, then, bang, it landed in the middle of the pavement- narrowly missing a woman on the path.
"I called the police and was one of four witnesses. There was another, black dog, at the window."

Another Sidmouth dog-lover, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the sight of the bloodied dog was "gut-wrenchingly sickening". He said he had seen two animals on the ledge, by an open bay-window beforehand and had thought there was an "accident waiting to happen."
A Sidmouth police spokeswoman said officers were made aware of the incident, attended the scene and located the dog's owner.
