West Yorkshire Police is today (20 February) hosting a conference focusing on Dangerous Dogs.
The event is being held at West Yorkshire Police's Carr Gate Complex at Wakefield to raise awareness about dog attacks and the impact upon victims as well as identifying opportunities for promoting responsible dog ownership and improved partnership working.Sounds important.
There are a number of key speakers throughout the day including Merseyside and Cheshire Constabularies, Royal Mail, the National Health Service and Guide Dogs and Sergeant Stewart Dunderdale, the West Yorkshire Police force lead on dangerous dogs.
Members of the audience include local authorities and groups from the charitable sector including the RSPCA and Dogs Trust.Gosh, I wonder why they felt they needed this sort of....
Locals had expressed concern over the dog and yesterday West Yorkshire police confirmed they had seized the animal, a bitch called Alex, on June 22nd as a suspected banned pit bull terrier.
But a spokesman said: “It did not have enough pit bull characteristics to be held as a banned breed. It was returned.”*sighs*
