Dog owner pays heavy price for attack

Dog owner pays heavy price for attack A 41-year-old Padstow man has been fined more than $3,000 after his two dogs attacked and killed another pet owned by a neighbour. No  

A 41-year-old Padstow man has been fined more than $3,000 after his two dogs attacked and killed another pet owned by a neighbour.

Last week, Police, Council officers and RSPCA representatives were called to a property in Uranus Road, where two Bullmastiffs were seized and later euthanised.

Mayor Khal Asfour said one of the animals had been listed on the dangerous animal register, following an attack in the Cumberland Council area last year.

"Owners of animals declared dangerous are required by law to follow specific procedures and that was not done in this case," Mayor Asfour said.

After questioning by Council officers, the owner was fined $3,190 for three infringements under the Companion Animals Act.

"I hope this is a warning to other owners of pets in our City, they must be aware of their responsibilities and if they’re not, they should quickly find out," Mayor Asfour said.

"Otherwise, it could very well prove a costly mistake. There have been tragic cases where people, including children, have lost their lives in dog attacks.

"In this case, another animal was mauled to death and that is also unacceptable."

In just the past week, a baby lost her life in an attack in Inverell, while a 10-year-old girl was seriously injured in Melbourne.

If residents are involved in a dog attack incident, they are encouraged to notify Council within 24 hours. They should also contact Council if they believe a dog is a danger or a menace.
