Police were called to Morley Street in the town following reports of a dog on the loose.
When officers arrived at about 9.30pm on Friday, they found that the dog had bitten two people and was ' acting in an aggressive manner'.
Rochdale again..? That place is a sewer. Oh, well, I suppose it's a long spell in an expensive kenn..
The dog was destroyed due to concerns about the number of people in the area and the injuries caused.
That's the sort of police action we need more of!
In a statement, a spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "At around 9.30pm last night (Friday 6 August), police were called to reports of a dog loose on Morley Street, Rochdale.
"Officers attended and found that two members of the public had been bitten by the dog who was acting in an aggressive manner.
"Unfortunately, due to the nature of the incident, the dog was humanely destroyed as a safety precaution due to the number of people in the area and the injuries caused.
"Enquiries are ongoing. No serious injuries were reported."
Why so apologetic? Is it because of idiots like this one?
Because if so, don't bother. You can't appease them and you shouldn't even try...
