The tragedy – in the Clubmoor area of Liverpool – has led to the Clarke family calling for tougher dog control laws to be brought in, with muzzles on all dogs in public, and under-18s barred from walking dogs.So, 'the tragedy' was caused by an under 18 year old walking an unmuzzled dog in public?
Why, no. Why ever would you think that?
Kenny said: “We are not dog haters, we love dogs - I’ve been around them my whole life.
“It is a case of owners taking more responsibility.
“Every human being is different and so are dogs. They all have different personalities and are capable of reacting.
“If dogs were muzzled in public then the number of attacks would fall.
“It needs to start now before someone else become a victim.”Kenny, this case is awful, but just why you think forcing Mrs Miggins to muzzle her 2lb Pomeranian when she walks it down the road to get her morning newspaper is the answer to stopping men like your brother from being mauled to death in their own back garden by his neighbour's uncontrollable half-starved 180lb killing machine, I've no idea.
I hesitate to suggest that it's because you're from Liverpool. Has anyone got a better suggestion?
