Call for new laws on dogs
2:00pm Friday 6th July 2012 in News
A PET owner has called for laws to be brought in banning Staffordshire bull terriers from being in public without a muzzle after his two dogs were attacked on three occasions.
The latest incident left David Sawers’ westie with wounds behind his ears after the bull terrier ‘clamped’ his jaws around Mr Sawers’ dog’s head.
He added: “I have contacted Warrington South MP David Mowat and asked him to table a motion in Parliament that fighting dogs are muzzled when they are out in public and on a proper leash.”
His appeal follows a 42-year-old woman requiring nose reconstruction surgery after a Staffordshire bull terrier attack in April, as reported in last week’s Warrington Guardian.
