Dog seized after complaints | Otago Daily Times Online News : Otago, South Island, New Zealand & International News

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.
