Travis singer Fran Healy’s hand ‘mauled’ by dachshund after he tried to save it

Travis singer Fran Healy shared a few gory pictures of his hand after a sausage dog “mauled the s***” out of it.

The 48-year-old rocker revealed he tried to save the pooch from a car accident but things quickly went south for him.

He took to Twitter to share the photos of his hands as well as the story of what went down with the dachshund.

“I was driving down my hill and as I rounded a corner there were 3 cars jackknifed and from the middle of the chaos ran a daschund,” he wrote.

“So I jumped out and chased it up the hill. Cars bomb down our hill and it would have been toast. So I tried to pick it up and it mauled the s*** out my left hand. I held on, hoping to chuck it into our porch but then I slipped and it bolted off, leaving me pishing blood all over the shop.

“So much blood. Then all the neighbors came out and one of them called an ambulance. I ran into the house and poured alcohol over the wounds…”

He went on to say that a fire engine arrived and “five Calvin Klein models” got out of the vehicle.

The firefighters suggested he go to urgent care for the wounds.

“By this time there was about 20 cars waiting to pass, I’m pishing blood (by the way ladies and some boys… I totally now get the fireman thing) anyways I drove to Urgent Care on Selma and they cleaned me up good and now I’m here and my finger is patched up and bloody sore.

“The dog… is fine. Was cornered at the bottom of the hill and the owner, who lives in Stevie Nicks old house (pop pickers), was reunited.”

In the photos he tweeted, blood can be seen seeping through the bandages wrapped around his fingers.

He later returned to the platform to share another picture of his hand without the bandages.

“Maybe shouldn’t play the guitar for a couple of weeks… or maybe should,” the star joked.

The Scottish singer is the lead vocalist of Travis and is based in Los Angeles.

The group – formed in 1990 – is made up of Dougie Payne, Andy Dunlop and Neil Primrose.
