Dog Bite related Incidents in Alcester- We have had three incidents reported to us this week relating to people and dogs being attacked / bitten by other dogs that were either loose or not in control. All three reports are unrelated. All three incidents are being investigated and further details are to be obtained regarding the dogs involved and their owners. In one of the resolved cases the injured party has agreed that the dogs owner should be officially spoken to by the Police / Dog Warden. We include below some advice regarding the Law and Dogs:-

Overview - It's against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, such as:

  • in a public place
  • in a private place, for example a neighbour's house or garden
  • in the owner's home

The law applies to all dogs.

Out of control - Your dog is considered dangerously out of control if it:

  • injures someone
  • makes someone worried that it might injure them

A court could also decide that your dog is dangerously out of control if either of the following apply:

  • it attacks someone's animal
  • the owner of an animal thinks they could be injured if they tried to stop your dog attacking their animal

A farmer is allowed to kill your dog if it's worrying their livestock.

Penalties - You can get an unlimited fine or be sent to prison for up to 6 months (or both) if your dog is dangerously out of control. You may not be allowed to own a dog in the future and your dog may be destroyed.

  • If you let your dog injure someone you can be sent to prison for up to 5 years or fined (or both). If you deliberately use your dog to injure someone you could be charged with 'malicious wounding'.
  • If you allow your dog to kill someone you can be sent to prison for up to 14 years or get an unlimited fine (or both).
  • If you allow your dog to injure an assistance dog (for example a guide dog) you can be sent to prison for up to 3 years or fined (or both).
