Now more details have emerged about the moments after 68-year-old Karen, from Wyndham, escaped the 3 metre beast.

After her forearm came away in its mouth, she stumbled back to the road missing her limb just above the elbow last Wednesday.

At some point during 2015, a Travelodge guest left behind a miniature Shetland pony called Pudding.

We’re not sure exactly how they forgot Puds – maybe they left her tucked up in bed or grazing on the grass.

Anyway, thankfully she was okay and reunited with her family after being callously overlooked at the hotel in Ayr, Scotland.

The sad tale was revealed by Travelodge as part of their annual review of things left behind by guests.
