I think it was my neighbour's dog that was attacked. I've never spoken to her but I see her from my window walking her dogs all the time. Did the victim dog die or is it recovering somewhere? Sadly I suspect the former. I'll speak to my neighbour when I next see her. Her dogs were/are such gentle lovely animals and this is very sad.
there is a guy who walks his 2 dogs at least 3-4 times per day from where ever he lives to the offie on the corner of blackfriars rd/ webber st. never on a lease, the dogs walk in the shop if they want.
i'm pretty damm sure that this is not ok , yet no one says a thing. im starting to wonder and also getting pissed off as my missus is scared of dogs and has been cornered by these 2 mutts and their idiot owner at least 3 times now. n.ot happy and im sure my bark will be worse than their bite
The most tragic thing about this incident, was how this group of fully, grown men just stood, outside the Rose Pub, not lifting a finger to help this poor woman and her dog. They didnt even have the decency to call 999. It was this cab driver that pulled over to help her. People in London are so self centered. "Makes you wonder why London is listed as one of the most dangerous cities in the world".
Ms Reeve - This is, without doubt, a very unpleasant event, but where is London listed as one of the most dangerous cities in the world? Can you show us a link (ideally that's not from the Daily Mail)?
Does it really rank with Baghdad and Kabul for chaotic explosions, or Mexico City or Bogota for kidnapping, or practically anywhere or bad neighbourhoods of practically anywhere in the US for murder, or Jo'burg for general crime?
There's an article here (link) from CNN on dangerous cities. I don't know the methodology behind it, but London's nowhere to be seen and the places it does list are far scarier than here.
