Dog attack on kids, owner may be jailed

A dog which rushed at two children and attacked them has been seized by council rangers and may be killed and its owner could be jailed if the dog is a dangerous breed.

An 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl were walking along Tanderagee Street in Constitution Hill about 5.10 last night (AEST) when the dog escaped from a nearby property, ran at the children and bit the boy twice on his left arm.

The boy was taken to Westmead Childrens Hospital, where he was treated for his wounds.

The local council has seized the dog.

Under the Companion Animals Regulation 1999, a restricted or dangerous dog which attacks or bites a person because it is not properly controlled may be destroyed immediately and its owner could face fines of 55-thousand dollars or liable to two years imprisonment.
