I've just witnessed a viscious dog rip flesh off another dog at the junction with Weston Street
& Snowfields. There were plenty of people around looking aghast at what was going on. The women whose dog was attacked was screaming hysterically whilst the black guy with the pitbull/stafford (not exactly sure what it was) seemed to either have no strength to control the dog or didn't care. The woman was eventually able to run into the 24 hour supermarket to get away from the dog. At that point I scarpered as it was a scary situation & the attacking dog & owner turned to walk away from the shop. Scary very very scary.
There are far too many dogs in this area & many are allowed to run free in the parks. In my view all dogs need to be kept on leads at ALL times. One day it won't be another dog that is attacked but an innocent individual or child.
