Duffy Urges Dog Owners To Act Responsibly

Published: 23 June, 2018

Speaking following the death of a dog in Ballyoran on Saturday he said:

"Danny was a much loved family pet. He was five years old and a rescue dog. His owner was out walking him when the lurcher attacked him and mauled him to death. The family are totally aggrieved.

"Dogs must at all times be on a lead and under their owners control. In this instance this was not the case.

"The lurcher has been reported and I have requested the increased presence of the local dog warden. Dog owners must exercise responsibility in the interests of the safety of all."
