An out-of-control dog has injured a number of people in an incident in Chippenham. At least six police units responded to reports of the animal biting several locals in John Coles Park on Malmesbury Road this afternoon (Saturday 16 January).
At least one child was rushed to hospital for treatment at around 2.15pm whilst police officers, the dog’s owner and vets tried to bring the dog under control.
The animal reportedly escaped a house in the Greenway Lane area before running into the park and carrying out the attack.
Did the police act this time? Reader, they did...
“Officers attended and were able to bring the dog under control with the assistance of a local vets.”
What? Why? An ARV should have dealt with this, permanently!
Following the incident, the dog was allowed to go home with its owner...
...but an investigation has been launched and police enquiries are ongoing.
Meanwhile, over at the local dog-worshipper's Facebook page, is there concern for the injured children and their own animals from this known threat? Reader, there is not:
Yes, let's be concerned about the future of the poor little doggie-woggie and what restrictions might get put on dog owners (Ed: Ha! As if!) and not the mauled child.
