Attacks on Guide Dogs Condemned
A dramatic rise in attacks on guide dogs by strays has left owners in Devon and Cornwall feeling vulnerable
The charity Guide Dogs say it's increasingly worried by the rising number of guide dog owners who are reporting attacks by strays in the street.
Latest research shows the number of reported attacks on guide dogs has risen from three a month to over eight dog attacks a month within a 24 month period from June 2010 to May 2012.
In most cases the cause of the attack was unprovoked, and the aggressor dog was uncontrolled and off the lead.
