Dog attack on Hilltop Rd. Sun 6 Jan 6.00 pm
I wish to place on record that I was attacked by two dogs who came from a property on the lower side of Hilltop Rd near the stop street. As I was approaching the property from the North side the owner let his two dogs on to the street a few yards from where I was walking. The dogs immediately made for me, snarling and barking, one attacking from the front the other from the rear where he cannoned in to me causing me to stumble – hysterical screaming finally brought the dog owner out and he called his dogs off. By this time I was frightened angry and deeply shocked and harsh words were exchanged – the owner’s reaction ‘My dogs don’t bite so no harm done’. No apology, no offer of assistance, nothing – my Sunday afternoon walk turned into a nightmare.
How many more dog attacks of this kind on Scarborough’s beaches and roads before someone is seriously injured?
