It clearly says in this park that dogs should be on leads. The number of dogs running round without leads on is a positive joke.

How awful something like this has happened.... :(

It doesn't state that the dog/s were on or off leads. I find that dogs are more vicious ON a lead than off as they are not only a target but are also restricted.

I get your drift but dogs on lead are not more vicious. They are more apprehensive and therefore more aggressive. Big difference.

It doesn't state dogs should be on leads. Those signs are for the woodlands.

Our dog is more calm off the lead than when he is on the lead. He was attacked by another dog when he was on a lead but won the day. Unfortunately the other dog owner complained to the police because her dog was bitten by my dog. Fortunately they didn't take any action but I had to pay the bill for a vet to check her dog. Just because my dog was much bigger than hers!!!
Leads are OK if dogs are used to them otherwise they get nervous which then brings on unfortunate reactions.

It's closed now until next April but when it reopens anyone with a young dog or new puppy would be doing everyone a favor if they took it to Uplands at Manor Farm. It's a secure field specifically set aside for people to exercise their dogs off leash. Do it early and often and you vastly reduce the possibility of any fights in the future. I'm amazed that more land owners with a spare corner of field have not seen the opportunity to make a few quid for very little work.
