POLICE had to be called in when a dog was mauled to death in a back garden, causing a row between neighbours in the street.

Trevor, a 14-year-old Yorkshire terrier, died following the attack in Hartington Road, Southend, on Sunday night.

He was attacked by a bull terrier- type dog which got into the garden through a broken fence.

Jean Williams had let Trevor out into the garden before the attack. She said: “I’d just let him out for the last time that night when I heard this awful noise. I can’t describe it and I called for my son.

“He found Trevor. He wouldn’t let me see him because it was so bad. Trevor didn’t stand a chance.”

Echo:

Trevor.

Charlie Williams, 29, Jean’s other son, is devastated by the death of his pet. He said: “I was out when it happened, but my mumput him out before bedtime then she heard a commotion and shouted for my brother, but it was too late. It was horrific.

“My mum called me to come home. The police were already there.

“They say it will take a long time to take it to the courts and there is nothing they can do until then, but I want to warn my neighbours about these dangerous dogs.”

The family are so concerned they no longer allow children to play in the garden over fears the dog might come back.

A police spokesman said: “We had reports that a dog had entered a property in Hartington Road and had killed a dog at 9.10pm on Sunday. We also had a separate report of a disturbance in the street between neighbours.

We will be speaking with both parties over a dog dangerously out of control.”

Unless they start fining/jailing irresponsible dog owners properly, nothing will change. However, I don't think it will be too long before someone takes the law into their own hands.

Yet again people judging dog owners when they dont know the history of the dog or the owners. For all you know that dog could of been a rescue dog and the owner could of been doing right by that dog!!. We only no one side of the story im not saying that the dog wasn't in the wrong because it was but people need to stop pre judging people when they know little or in this case no knowledge of the dog owner. How you you like being pre judged if your dog lost it and done something stupid!!! No I dont think so!! So stop being know it all when you no nothing about the other side people like anger me because you probably wouldn't be saying the same if you knew both sides of story and definitely not if it was your dog!!!. You do get bad dog owners but you also get dogs with mental health problems like humams. Rant over !!!

I was just thinking more or less exactly the same..... we don't have to wait long for the next one do we...... I find it astonishing that anyone can own something as potentially dangerous to life as a dog without any form of licence ! A prerequisite of gaining a licence should be a compulsory awareness course of the all the considerations of owning such an animal.........

No matter the history of the owner or the dog, it shouldn't have been out without a lead. If people choose to keep any pet they must take steps to ensure they are able to care for it and keep it and others safe . If the dog gets out this might mean paying for a higher fence or a padlock on your gate . I'm sure that not all bull terrier type dogs are vicious but they are getting some bad press of late. So maybe owners of this type of dog should take extra steps to make sure their pet doesn't get out and Accidentally hurt some one else's much loved pet.

If i had my dog attacked and ripped to bits i would be most angry...if it was my dog that did the attacking i would take to a vet and put it down as i know next time it could be a human, and also offer compensation to the other dog owners....but i wouldn't get in that situation in the first place, some people are fit to look after such animals and some are not fit for purpose but still want one of these mutts as some sort of trophy.

hope that answers your question....what about yourself..?

Perhaps I am missing something here?. The resultant court case and probable slap on the wrist with a modest fine will not bring back the Yorkshire terrier that would have died a horrible death. The family has been traumatised by this event and should seek damages once the court case is over. Get a solicitor with attitude, draw up an agreement on a' no win no fee' basis, he or she gets 30% of the action, and you sue their arse off for a great deal of money.

Who was responsible for the broken fence ... first question?

A dog killed a dog, but what if it had been a child in the garden?

My understanding from the report is that it got through a broken fence?

If folk want to keep dangerous dogs they should have all the teeth removed, a bit drastic i know, but we are no longer safe around animals!

That second side of the story is important I feel as we know nothing. Im sorry if im not making myself clear im not taking sides just stating that we shouldn't judge befor we know everything. I hope the family are all ok and getting the support they need and deserve and I wish them the best. On the other side I hope police are investigating the back ground of the dog and the owner and untern every little stone[/p][/quote]You've changed your tune.[/p][/quote]I haven't changed my tune this is what I was trying to say was clearly saying it wrong.

Who was responsible for the broken fence ... first question?

A dog killed a dog, but what if it had been a child in the garden?

My understanding from the report is that it got through a broken fence?

If folk want to keep dangerous dogs they should have all the teeth removed, a bit drastic i know, but we are no longer safe around animals!
Some good points made was it front or back garden ??

front, back, side way,,,,who cares and it matters nothing, the point is a dangerous uncontrollable un-invited beast ripped Trev to bits whilst he was in his owners garden, not the other way round.
i like the teeth idea...just see how many wouldn't want one of them things then.

Has anyone mentioned yet, that it's not the dogs fault, it's the dogs owner to blame ?

The Scumbags who own this vicious dog, live in a "Drug House" a few doors down from this decent family, but the police like every other agency dont want to take any action,never mind the the dog being "Toothless" The law certainly is !

No mention of actually seeing the "Bull Breed" did it also say the that the garden fence was broken,if that is the case i would have put a lead on my dog to make sure that he could not get ! More so check nothing else in the garden before i let her out. Even though my garden is secure i still check through the window to make sure there is nothing in the garden. Sorry for the loss of the dog

Ok, so they cull badgers as they may cause TB in cattle. It is about time they culled ALL dangerous dogs and have done with it. They are killing children now.....
