A boy has serious facial injuries after being bitten by a dog in Hawke's Bay.

The five-year-old was flown by helicopter on Wednesday from Wairoa Hospital to Hawke's Bay Airport where he was transferred to a plane to be flown to Hutt Hospital for further treatment.

The boy is now in a stable condition, a Hutt Hospital spokesman says.

The Wairoa Council has impounded the dog and will be investigating the incident, a spokesman says.
