'Twas the season for dog attacks in the Eurobodalla


There were 12 dog attacks in the Eurobodalla last month. 

There were 12 dog attacks in the Eurobodalla in December.

Eight people and four dogs were attacked in the incidents, with four people requiring medical attention. 

Eurobodalla Council says the attacks are extremely concerning and involved mainly dogs roaming the streets. 

Dogs crossed with Staffordshire Bull Terrier, as well as a number of smaller breeds have been implicated in the attacks. 

Eurobodalla Council says they are following up five of the incidents, and three fines have been issued. 

Council's environmental services manager Deb Lenson says while people may be in shock after an attack it's important to try and get as many details as possible to pass on to Council to investigate and prosecute.
