'All Dogs Should Be On Leads', Right?

Yesterday (22 July) a dog attacked and injured a passer by in Cinnamon Lane, Glastonbury.
A 72 year old woman was walking opposite the children’s play area, at about 10am. She was attacked by a husky on a lead and in the charge of a man in his late teens or early 20s. She received a substantial bite wound to her leg, which required hospital treatment.


Avon & Somerset Police believe they have identified the dog and its owner. The dog has been seized by dog handlers and is now being cared for at police kennels.

At great expense, no doubt.

A case for Clarkson's Law?

Only if the dog was encouraged. If it's owner was a bystander, he gets off - there being no law of omission in the UK.

Let's hope that the woman has children who kidnap the dog owner and set upon him/her/it.
