I am very concerned and saddened that a police officer is now in hospital due to a vicious dog attack.



Dogs that violently attack people, and other pets, are a threat to public safety. They should not be allowed on our streets and in the community.


The government cannot continue to overlook these very serious incidents. It has a duty to ensure public safety.


A way to do that is to ensure that Domestic Animal Services is appropriately staffed and guided by clear policies, not the current mishmash and inconsistent application of policies.


Dog rangers have a very important role in keeping our community safe from vicious dogs, but the reality is, their ability to protect the public will be hindered without appropriate backing from the government.
