A danger dog terrorising an Angus neighbourhood had a muzzling order placed on it six months before its latest attack on a helpless terrier.Thus proving the justice system north of the border is as impotent as the one below it...
A neighbour, who may have helped save Dougal when she threw water on the attack dog, is one of a number of people who have spoken out about the “out of control” animal.
“It’s a well-known danger dog and she (its owner) doesn’t have any control over it,” said the woman.
“We have a dog and worry every time we want to take it out.
“Because it’s attacked other dogs before, we’ve been through different scenarios of what we could do if it grabbed our dog. That’s why I threw water on it to try to get it off the man’s dog last week.”Perhaps you should have held the useless owner's head in a bucket of the stuff instead.
Police seized the Staffie in the immediate aftermath of the recent night-time incident, but it is now back with the owner.
“They did take it away, but they gave it back almost straight away,” said the resident.Yes, well, they have form for that.
