Yet another dog attack

8th September 2019 – Pen Ponds, Richmond Park

The resident pair at Pen Ponds were attacked by a dog off the lead on Sunday in yet another incident of dogs attacking swans. Can I remind members of the public ‘My dog has never done this before” is not a valid excuse. The cob was very badly injured and underwent emergency surgery, as well as having a course of antibiotics to fight the infection of the dog bite. It remains to be seen if he will regain the use of his left leg.
