Southern District Command Centre deployment co-ordinator Senior Sergeant Dave Scott said police were called to two dog attacks in Plunket St about 2.30pm.
Animal control team leader Ros MacGill said the Dunedin City Council impounded a Staffordshire bull terrier-cross dog yesterday.
The council was called about two incidents in the street. The terrier ”raced” towards a male cyclist and the terrier and a boxer ”bailed up” another man, whom the terrier tried to bite.
”It didn’t touch any skin, as far as I know, but jeans were ripped.”
Animal control staff deemed the terrier to be aggressive and impounded the dog, which was the subject of previous complaints to the council, she said.
