Police officers finally attended on Saturday evening, 36 hours after the attack, and have spoken to the owner of the terrier about the possibility of rehoming it.
Mrs Armstrong said: “I just can’t understand why they did not send someone out earlier.
“When they arrived, the officers said if it was any consolation, they had not had a break all day.
“They said there was no budget and no staff to cover.”Yeah, they often say that. All forces use the Terrible Toree Cutz as the bogeyman.
But they have no problems dealing with serious crime, I note.
