Dog Attacks Up

8 June 2015, 19:03

New figures have revealed the number of dog attacks in London went up fifty per cent last year.

There were more than 1,400, partly because offences on private property are now included.

On 13 May 2014, The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 was amended so that the term "a public place" was substituted to "any place in England or Wales (whether or not a public place)".

Before this, dog bites and attacks on private property were excluded.

Between January and December 2014 there were a total of 1,400 offences recorded, representing an average of 177 offences per month. August 2014 experienced the peak during this period with 141 offences.

The boroughs of Croydon and Barnet recorded the highest numbers of attacks followed by Southwark, Hillingdon and Bromley.
