A Tatura resident is worried about wandering dogs in the town and is concerned someone will be attacked.February 13, 2014 4:33am
The issue of wandering dogs has been brought to the notice of the Guardian once again, with one resident, Kelly, concerned it is only a matter of time before someone is attacked.
Kelly said she had been a resident of Tatura for almost 20 years, and would like to remind residents about their dog ownership responsibilities.
‘‘I’m a very keen walker and am finding that more and more dogs are getting out of their owners’ properties,’’ she said.
She said she feared the day when she or someone else might be attacked by a wandering dog.
Kelly said she had changed the areas in which she walked in an attempt to avoid encountering dogs, but each time there was another dog on the street.
‘‘I don’t know how others around Tatura feel about this topic, but I do know that there is a lot of residents that go out for a walk and exercise around the town,’’ she said.
Kelly said she was a dog owner herself, ‘‘so I’m not against people with dogs’’.
‘‘I just feel that as a pet owner, there is a responsibility to make sure that the animals are secure within the owner’s property,’’ she said.
