Jail own­ers of vi­cious dogs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

THE

in­juries to teenager Kyle Fer­gus in­flicted by an out of con­trol dog are hor­rific.

Quite sim­ply, the dog must be de­stroyed and the owner pros­e­cuted.

If the an­i­mal had spot­ted a smaller child the con­se­quences could have been even worse and while it lives that dan­ger is al­ways there.

Any­one whose dog injures a per­son must take re­spon­si­bil­ity for that.

But in this case the an­i­mal is quite clearly ex­tremely vi­cious. Kyle did noth­ing to pro­voke the at­tack which came out of the blue.

This is very dif­fer­ent to a nor­mal dog re­act­ing badly in a shock sit­u­a­tion.

This was an an­i­mal that is quite clearly vi­cious and its owner must be aware of that. When caught the owner should be jailed.
