A Melton woman whose terrier was viciously attacked by another dog and required life-saving surgery is angry that police declined to investigate the incident.
She was told by officers that it was a matter for the council to look into...The usual fobbing off that must have served them well in the past, before they got the increase in legislative weaponry that they claimed they needed in order to act...

Blossom’s owner added: “The whole incident was horrific. I have been to the police station but they said it was a matter for the council although I thought I was in danger as well, and was extremely frightened.Let's look at that link again:

“It was so upsetting that a dog of this size could be on the loose in Melton town centre and the police are not willing to investigate.

A spokesperson for Melton Council said: “These incidents do not happen that often...”My blogtag is here to prove you wrong!
Leicestershire Police were unable to respond before we went to press.They seem unable to do anything quickly, don't they?
