Toddler bitten on arm and head in dog attack

A TODDLER was bitten on the arm and head by a dog.


A police hunt is now underway to find both the dog and its owner.
 

The three-year-old girl was playing in the park in Somercotes, Laindon when she was approached by the dog, which is thought to be a breed similar to a Pit Bull Terrier.
 

Suddenly it bit the toddler and then left the scene with the young girl.
The incident happened at 2.30pm on Sunday.
 

Witnesses can contact police at Basildon on 101.

I'm surprised comments have been allowed, as the story about the woman and her "lovely dogs" didn't have comments enabled.

That didn't surprise me.

I am a dog owner of this breed and I am all for the law being changed, sadly it is the chavs that give this breed a bad name. Dog license needs to be brought back in & you should also have to have a license to breed any type of dog. My dogs are good with children, adults & other dogs but then I took mine puppy training & don't use them as a weapon. I hope the little girl is okay and the owner is found & hopefully prosecuted, but we all know that will never happen.

Let's assume one day the government says we have to have dog licenses. Fine. Then what?

The scum out there who don't have their dogs chipped, who don't control them, who leave the scene when their dogs bite someone… do you seriously think they will bother to get licenses?

And so what if they do? How does a dog being licensed help the police track down owners after attacks like this?

The only people who will buy a dog license are the decent owners, the type who vacs/chip/neuter their pets,

The dog license will achieve nothing!

No need to come across so aggressive is there? It would be a start, along with micro chipping, I don't have all the answers just like you don't. But I have 2 staffs & I trust them with my life but I am well aware of chavs who make these dogs like this. My point is dont blame the dog blame the owner, something needs to be done & as a responsible dog owner im up for any positive changes, I don't want my dogs attacked by a out of control dog and I would hate to see a child hurt too.

And for the record both my dogs have been attacked one by a border collie & the other one by a labrador. Ive also been out with my staffs & ive seen a chav with one & ive felt intimidated so I understand how people with small dogs feel. The problem is society, but we have to blame the too soft government for that, bring back hanging :)

Dog Licenses were NEVER any good in the past, as owners received SWA for paying for them, the same as a driving license, except being allowed to drive a motor vehicle.

WHO would gain from the dog license IF it was returned?

AS a responsible owner, AND clean-up after my dog, I would be willing to have a license, but depending on the cost due to being a Senior Citizen existing on a pittance of a pension, then WHERE the money is actually spent.

Okay, so I am on a pittance of an income, but so long as my now Soul-mate gets fed, I am prepared to make alternative arrangements for myself, even if it is bread and jam as a meal.

Thanks Southendshrimper.
Just for the record, once a dog has been "allowed" and "encouraged" to kill a cat or another animal, there is no stopping it's desire to attack and subsequently kill. A child (or human) may be its next, (trophy!)

What i find strange is when us the 'public' report dog attacks made against our own dogs... the police dont want to know.. they always give you the usual 'contact your dog warden'.. its only when a dog attacks a child that it becomes a police investigation.... hmm strange but maybe if the police starteed taking a note from people that are reporting attacks on our dogs then it might in turn stop the attacks happenin on us... rant over hope the child is ok.

Blimey guvnor, the level of vitriol is great here isn’t it. Having left the land of dog faeces incrusted pavements for sunnier climes (Oz) 15 years ago; I can tell you licensing, chipping, neutering and injecting do work quite well here, but then we don’t have the chav element. We’re getting them from you buggers tho; you keep letting them out of the bloody country. Here in Oz we shoot them; the stray dogs and cats that is; no seriously I shoot 50 -90 a month, pity I can’t shoot the owners tho. Fact is in reality bad owners have bad pets, be that a horse or whatever. I had a Pet Parrot once called Trigger, fastest peanut opener in the west he was, cranky bugger in the morning tho’. Maybe the dog was just a bit cranky and needed to get some saliva off his teeth. Who knows and who cares who in their tiny right mind would let a little girl out on her own in Essex DUH!

What this story doesn't tell you is why the dog bit the toddler. Dogs do not bite for no reason. There was a story similar to this last year where a golden retriever bit a girl and the mother wanted every dog that bites to be PTS. But when the reason became clear as to why the dog bit it made sense, the girl went up to a strange dog and went to stroke it, did the dog want to be stroked by a strange child possibly running up to it, did the dog see the girl or was it spooked.
I have 2 GSD's and the amount of strangers who feel it is their god given right to stroke my dogs without asking is unbelievable. So does that mean I can go up to a stranger and rub, tickle and run my hand through their hair because U like the look of them, I don't think so...
It is very bad when a dog bites a human or another dog and sticter controls and rules about the competance and capabilities of the owner of the breed, do they know what that breed is bred to do, do they know the temperament of the dog and how quick it can change if stressed, spooked etc. The right breed with the right owner will mean less attacks and dumped dogs.
I hope the toddler doesn't have a fear of dogs because of the action of one owner and I really hope the parents don't contribute to prolonging any fear that may not be there to start with.

If you are trying to win the title of Dick Of The Day I reckon you're odds on favourite.

This is a 3 year old child that was attacked.
By the way, if permission is needed to stroke a dog, should they ask the dog first, if off the lead?
If a dog is running free and in an open space, interaction will occur between all those using the space.
If anyone owns a dog, who could be uncontrollable in such an area, keep them tethered.
In an open park, children will play with children, scream and shout.
Not a place for dogs off the lead.

No, they should ask the owner like any normal person or not touch the dog at all. just because a dog is off lead doesn't mean that gives people the right to touch it, (which i have said before). Maybe children should be kept on a lead until they know what they are doing, so the dogs have time to be what they are free running animals. Some of the children i come across should be kept on a lead!

Some people will never be happy with dogs being off lead just as some people will never be happy to keep them on a lead. What happened is awful and i hope the owner of the dog does get prosecuted, but i also hope that the dog goes to a hem that will treat it properly and give it the training, care that it may not have got currently.

Think you've lost the plot, in what I was saying. Dogs are so often running around, loose with it's owner not in site and not in control. Read again! Love dogs and sensible owners.
