Unleashing dogs on beaches
Sir, – While walking on Killiney beach on August 13th I was attacked by a black dog and bitten on the leg and suffered a skin puncture. It was very frightening! I would like to point out that because attacks are not reported (Liz Neligan, August 13th) does not mean they’re not happening. It was a very sudden and frightening attack – the owner of the dog was with the dog, but it was unleashed.
I dread to think what might have happened if I had a young child with me! – Yours, etc,
