Dogs in un­fenced yard at­tack chil­dren on way to Covent Gar­den schools

Stabroek News - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Dear Editor, There is a house next to 114 Prospect on the East Bank of De­mer­ara that ap­pears to be sit­ting on a gov­ern­ment re­serve. The man who oc­cu­pies this house has ap­prox­i­mately twenty dogs; they are road dogs and very fe­ro­cious, but he doesn’t have a gate or a fenced yard. He’s sur­rounded by three schools, namely, Covent Gar­den Pri­mary, Kin­der­garten and the sec­ondary schools. Ev­ery day these dogs at­tack the school­child­ren ei­ther to or from school, and even some­times oth­ers. Some might throw a small brick at them, but they would be soundly vil­i­fied by ei­ther the man or his wife. Most chil­dren are afraid to pass that area (it is the only street that can be used to get to the school) due to these fe­ro­cious dogs. I am a

con­cerned par­ent who is ask­ing the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to kindly look into the mat­ter, be­cause I have two chil­dren: one at­tends the pri­mary and an­other the sec­ondary school. A few years ago my daugh­ter was at­tacked by those very dogs and I worry about them ev­ery sin­gle day. I hope by writ­ing this let­ter and mak­ing this sit­u­a­tion pub­lic, our chil­dren will get some help and would be able to walk freely to and from school.

Yours faith­fully, (Name and ad­dress pro­vided)
