An image of a four-year-old girl attacked by a family dog in 2008 has been circulated by Twitter users claiming it's a Swedish child attacked by Muslims.

An image of a four-year-old girl attacked by a family dog in Wales in 2008 is being shared widely on social media by users claiming it is the picture of a boy in Sweden attacked by Muslims.

The image was first posted by Canadian Twitter user, David G Gowing, according to Wales Online.

"Swedish boy beaten by Islamic terrorists because he has blue eyes!," the self-proclaimed Trump supporter tweeted on Sunday.

His post was shared over 511 times before it was taken down.

The image actually shows the aftermath of a dog attack on a girl called Sophie Willis in Wales, according to Wales Online.

When corrected by another Twitter user, David G Gowing remained suspicious, saying: "Notice how the wound follows the curve of the bridge of the eye socket? Powerful dog bite not!"

It was unclear whether the post was later removed by the user himself or Twitter.
