Abuser names unreleased
Police have stepped up their campaign against irresponsible dog owners allowing dangerous' pit bulls to roam free on a Wirral promenade.
They swooped after a dog had been attacked as it walked with its owner along Egremont Promenade in Wallasey recently. A passer-by alerted the police and they arrived within minutes. As a result, the dog's owner was apprehended and his vicious pet taken to the local authority pound. Seacombe Labour Cllr Adrian Jones applauded their excellent' response to the problem. He hit out at irresponsible' dog owners for allowing their pets to menace people on the promenade.
He said the promenade was fast becoming a danger zone for people who just wanted to go out for a leisurely walk. "People using the promenade should never be victims of this sort of appalling behaviour," said Cllr Jones. "Our police have been ready for any similar attack and they arrived in force to bag the culprit." He added: "Egremont Promenade is used extensively by the elderly, by responsible dog walkers and by young mothers with toddlers. This excellent policing will be a deterrent to the cowardly idiots who think they can lurk on the prom to get warped pleasure by attacking defenceless people."
