Attack victims urge Canterbury council to tighten leash on dangerous dogs

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Changes to dog control rules in Canterbury's Waimakariri district could see tighter restrictions on where dog owners can let their dogs off a leash.

A Waimakariri District Council panel heard submissions to its draft Dog Control Bylaw on Thursday, including from dog attack victim Larissa Corboy, who underwent surgery after being attacked by a pack of dogs in June.

Corboy urged the council to look at regulating specific breeds and dog types, saying dangerous breeds and part-breeds in the district should be identified. The five dogs involved in her attack were all bull breeds.
