Control order for 'dangerous' Falmouth Rottweilers

First published in News

Truro magistrates have ordered two Rottweiler dogs to be kept under control by their owners, a man and a woman from Falmouth.

Christopher Millington, aged 52, and Michelle Millington, aged 43, of Meadowbank Road, accepted that the dogs, TJ and Simba, were dangerous and were told that the animals had in future to be kept muzzled, on leads and only in the care of a person over the age of 16 years at all times in public places.

The court heard that the dogs were found to be dangerous after incidents which took place in Falmouth on October 22, 2011 and December 4, 2012.

It's only ridiculous to those who don't consider it a serious and logical action.

In Private Eye this week: 4 Fox attacks on children in 10 years and there's a call for a cull of foxes. 6,000 dog attacks on children in the last year not leading to a call for a cull on dogs.

I'm a dog lover. I always blame the owners so they should be more severely punished or made to attend dog handling courses. We are talking about powerful dogs here that are quite capable of killing a person. Surely there should be some sort of vetting procedure for people who want to own breeds like this?
