Council starts pit bull amnesty (UK)

Council starts pit bull amnesty


Another Northern Irleand local authority has introduced an amnesty on dangerous dogs.

Owners of pit bull terriers and other illegal dogs can hand them into Omagh District Council's dog warden without fear of prosecution.
The amnesty, which follows one in Ballymena, will continue for two months.

Newry and Mourne District Council and Derry City Council are also considering such a move.

Omagh chief executive Danny McSorley said: "Whilst we don't have a huge problem with dogs here, we wanted to ensure that as far as possible people are not endangered by any of these animals.

"This will be a success if we can take any of these dangerous animals out of circulation. It doesn't take a lot of animals to do a lot of damage."
In January, the Ballymena council became the first in the UK to hold such an amnesty.

It followed a pitbull attack on a family in the county in November.

Sean and Deirdre Doherty, their son Ben and a family friend escaped with only minor injuries after an horrific attack by a pit bull-type dog in Randalstown Forest Park.

Their pet labrador, Troy, was killed in the attack.
