Dog owner charged

The owner of a pit bull cross that mauled a four-year-old girl to death in Melbourne’s north this year has been charged. The 57-year-old man from St Albans will face court in December following the death of Ayen Chol, who was attacked by a dog that ran into her St Albans home in August.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the dog’s owner had been charged with eight offences under the Domestic Animals Act. They include owning a dog that attacks a person, causing death; two counts of owning a dog that attacks a person, causing serious injury; and failing to register a dog.

He has been charged on summons to appear at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court on December 6.

Ayen’s death prompted a crackdown on dangerous dog breeds.
