loose pitbull )


These dog are owned by the same guy with the layer's farm at LP8, Kowlessur Road, Sangre Chquito. His proprty ONLY has a concrete wall to the front. The chain link fence to the sides & back are almost non existent. The dogs have bitten passers by several times.as well as people who went to buy eggs. They even up to yesterday (28/03/12) started biting the bumper of a vehiclewhilst the driver stopped to do a purchase. The dog have attacked other dogs in the area even killing one.He makes no effort to assist those bitten other than to say, as he did to a child, 'Go & tell your mother to carry you hospital. No efforts to carry the person bitten although both he & his wife are drivers owning several vehicles. Not EVEN a cent to assist in obtaining transport & medications. The dogs roam the road & neighbours' premises at any hour but more early mornings & night time. Sangre Grande Police stations have numerous reports. The Police warns the owner who then either ties the dogs or put them in a kennel for a few days. Then loose again.
This has been going on for some years now and a neighbour had gotten in contact with Attorbey Kevin Rattiram who as presenter highlighted it on WINTV's program- EYE ON CRIME (in 2011).Mr. Ratiram was influential in having the owner of the dogs secure them (dogs) for approximately 2 months. They are loose again, attacking people on the road.

to the piece of stuff not worthy of me to walk on with muddy boots, TRINI REBEL... YOU should be made to eat poison. YOU are probably one of the abusers of dogs that let dogs roam or abandon them or torture or beat them.

Don't focus on one end of the leash. They are animals after all. The owner should face some stiff penalties, then maybe he would be more responsible!

SO. Kill all the dogs in Trinidad and let all the nasty irresponsible, uncaring owners get off scot free right? Oh please. I agree if these dogs are attacking innocent people, something should be done about that BUT

some people commenting and saying that the animals have rights. i have rights too. the right to live in safety from these monstrous animals. most of these animals were not bred as fun loving pets, they were bred to be killers...

To Roper: These dogs have an owner. He is a Municipal police officer attached to the Port of City Corporation. He also professes to be a Pastor with his own church in Sangre Grande. What principles could he, without any, show his flock.

Why don't you call the local government office and let the dog catchers remove the dogs. Please not that the dog to the left is not a Pitbull and would not fall under the dangerous dogs act as it stands anyway.

What right does a dog have? When a dog starts to work and pay taxes. Then he has rights. But as of now get rid of them. I am not not going to reason with a dog. It's either i get rid of it or it get rid of me. they cannot cook, wash nor clean.

I totally agree with Trini Rebel. Why are those dogs still alive. Obviously the owner cannot control his animals, then John Public should control them for him. Toss them a piece of poisoned meat. End of story.
