Fran Healy from Scottish rock band Travis has revealed that he was strangely abused by a sausage dog in Los Angeles.
After mentioning the incident on Twitter, the 48-year-old said he was trying to save the dachshund from being caught in a car accident when it apparently turned on him.
“I was driving down my hill and when I rounded a corner, 3 cars were broken and from the middle of the chaos ran a daschund,” Healy tweeted. “So I jumped out and chased it up the hill. Cars bombed down our hill and it would have been toast. So I tried to pick it up and it moldy st out of my left hand.”

The Scottish singer-whose band is known for their hit charts ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me?’ – also shared photos of his injured hand, which had a bloody gash on his middle finger.
“I was holding on hoping to throw it in on our porch, but then I slipped and it bolted off, leaving me pishing blood all over the store. So much blood,” Healy shared.
“Then all the neighbors came out and one of them called an ambulance. I ran into the house and poured alcohol over the wounds … then I came out, but it was not an ambulance … it was a massive fire truck.”
Healy said “5 Calvin Klein models” then appeared from the fire truck to help him, but at that point he “whipped blood” and needed immediate attention.
He was able to drive himself to the nearby Urgent Care clinic, where they cleaned him, but and “patched up” and his “bloody sore” finger.

And if you were wondering, the rocker revealed “the dog … is fine. The corner was at the bottom of the hill and the owner, who lives in Stevie Nick’s old house (pop shutters), was reunited.”
For now, Healy is bandaging up and recovering in her home in LA.
“Maybe you shouldn’t play guitar for a few weeks … or maybe you should,” he concluded.
