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.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Ilam

"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
