Two dogs were put down after a fight broke out at an RSPCA dog show.Whoops!
Dozens of families who had turned out for the annual open day at the charity’s centre, in Enfield Road, Altham were left “very distressed” when a dog awaiting rehoming lunged at a show goer’s dog during a show parade.
Branch manager Ken Harrison described the event as a “tragic incident”. Mr Harrison declined to state the breed of the dogs…Oh, really? Why?
… but eye-witnesses said Megan, the dog which was attacked, was a King Charles spaniel-type and Dillon, the attacker, was a rotweiller type.In other words, a cross-breed. Presumably, no history known?
If so, why was it allowed to socialise at a public event? And why was it not under control?
Mr Harrison said: “It was very distressing for everyone involved and our heart goes out to everybody involved.
“All the dogs in our care are assessed on an ongoing basis and prior to this incident Dillon, the centre dog, had not shown any cause for concern regarding his behaviour.”I’d say I hope the owner of the other dog sues you, but you’d just waste more public money defending yourselves….
