PEOPLE in Bronygarth near Weston Rhyn have welcomed a Dog Control Order imposed on the owner of dog after a young schoolboy was attacked by the animal in one of a number of similar unprovoked incidents.

Residents claim the black Chinese Shar-Pei dog has been let loose to roam the area, leading to several unprovoked attacks which were reported to West Mercia Police in recent weeks.

On another occasion a woman walking her own dog was bitten after the Chinese Shar-Pei had set upon her pet, provoking the control order which must be adhered to for two months in an effort to see the animal properly controlled.

A person speaking on behalf of concerned Bronygarth residents said in a letter written to the Advertizer: “I would ask your readers to be vigilant while walking in the area and to report any sightings, or any threatening behaviour by the dog, to the police.”

A West Mercia Police spokesperson confirmed: “A woman has admitted allowing her dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place at Bronygarth on December 27 last year.

“She has been dealt with by means of a community resolution and must ensure her dogs are kept under control and to keep them on a lead in public,” they added.
