Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

On Friday 8th October, my dog was attacked in the park next to Marian vain primary school, I live in the house next to the park so always let me dog have a run around. I had just let my dog off the lead to which this husky approached my dog at the bottom of the slope to which the husky growled and attacked mine, I pulled my dog away and threw him behind me and was pushing the other dog away with my free hand the owner was a distance behind the dog so took a few moments to pull the dog away fully. The husky did not have a suitable collar on and did look like it could break easily. There was also an incident in may that was caught on cctv with the same husky killing a cat on my street (police have been involved) the owner was seen provoking the dog to attack the cat and then the owner took the cat away and dropped it back to the house a few days later with its tounge and tail cut off. As far as I was aware the husky was not meant to be in custody of the owners in the cctv but was accompanied by a young boy (16-18). This husky should not have been off the lead, it has proven that it can be aggressive towards other dogs. My dog has a little bit of his ear pulled off (the photo does not do it him justice) he has also had a limp since the attack. It’s not fair that I now have to be worried about another attack occurring. Most importantly I have no trust that the owners for the husky have any control over him. The husky is high risk, he will attack another animal or potential a adult or child. This really does need to be investigated. I have also reported the incident to the police (cad ref 3124)

  • I am shocked at the behaviour of this individual as a fellow dog owner I understand the upset, anxiety and anger this incident must’ve caused to you and your pet dog. Reviewing Bromley Council Public Space Protection Order & other legislation, unfortunately I must advise that the action of the dog (and owner) are not covered by any legislation we can enforce. It’s important for me to advise your option to seek civil action to recoup costs of vet bills and associated treatment, for this matter I’d advise seeking legal advice. Personally, I would also recommend an online report to the Met Police, for their records. Please be assured if we could take action, as an authority, we would act as robustly as legislation allowed.
