Shire successfully prosecutes owner following vicious dog attack
Posted 12 March 2021 Shire successfully prosecutes owner following vicious dog attack

The successful prosecution in the Derby Courthouse on 10 March 2021 of a vicious dog attack is a timely reminder for all dog owners of their responsibilities towards their dogs. The Shire of Derby/West Kimberley brought about a prosecution of a local dog owner whose dogs attacked a holiday maker in February 2020. At the time, the attack left the woman in hospital overnight, unable to work for about three weeks, with long term scarring and a fear of dogs. The Court imposed a fine and court costs of over $5000. The dog involved in the attack was put down soon after the attack as it was already a declared dangerous dog. The Shire’s Acting President, Paul White, said the Shire takes the safety of its community very seriously and any dog attacks should immediately be reported to the Shire Rangers on 9191 0999. “Make a note of the time and date of the attack and where it happened. Photographic evidence is also helpful,” Cr White said. “The Shire has zero tolerance for dogs that attack people and will have no hesitation in imposing penalties on their owners which may potentially lead to prosecution in the courts. “Unfortunately, dog attacks occur regularly and are often not reported to the Shire’s Rangers. This is a concern as attacks will often escalate if changes to the dog’s behaviour or containment are not changed. “Under State legislation, any breed of dog can be declared dangerous if they chase or cause injury or damage by an attack on a person, animal or vehicle and if the dog has repeatedly or shown a tendency to attack.” Further information about responsible dog ownership is available on the Shire’s website: https://www.sdwk.wa.gov.au/services/ranger-services/information-for-dog-owners.aspx
