Careless Dog Owners Responsible For Brutal Attack
A woman was brutally attacked by roaming dogs carelessly unrestrained by their owners.
Most stray dogs do not attack, even when they are in packs, but these are not strays. Police sources on Harbour Island have confirmed that the dogs belong to a couple who own a vacation home on the island. They have both been charged for the incident.
A woman, Shevaun Davies from Grand Cayman, was visiting Harbour Island. She was jogging on Pink Sands Beach Tuesday, May 22, when the four dogs attacked her, biting her several times. Ms. Davies now wants authorities to issue a public warning, as this could pose a threat to tourists who frequent the popular beach.
She ran into the ocean to escape what she described as a “pack of wolves”.
In a Tribune article she was quoted: “I was approached by what seemed to be four stray dogs, I stopped running and stood still hoping they would pass me by, but unfortunately that was not the case. Completely unprovoked, the dogs attacked me (and) I was bitten severely on my front right thigh and while that was happening two of the dogs bit me badly on my back left thigh.”
Ms Davies believes at least two other people have also been attacked by these particular dogs.
Stray and roaming dogs are a monumental societal problem in the Bahamas. Most attacks are by roaming dogs neglected or carelessly managed by irresponsible owners. The people are the problem not the dogs.animals, islands, society, tourism, vacation
