Dog Attack Wimbledon Common

13th June 2020 – Queensmere Wimbedon Common

Onlookers were shocked to see an out of control dog dive into the water to attack the swan family on Queensmere. The dog had several goes at the male who defended his family. Eventually the owner had to wade into the pond to retrieve the dog which refused to obey any commands. A team from the Swan Sanctuary attended and after examining the wounds decided to treat him on site and not take him away from his family. PLEASE keep your dog on a lead around wildlife. The comment is often “He has never done anything like that before ” when it is too late.
