UPA: Ban people who neglect their dogs
The United Pitbull Association of South Africa's Robert Nelson says the pitbulls concerned may not have been properly bred by their owners.
JOHANNESBURG – The United Pitbull Association of South Africa says that people who neglect their dogs should be banned from owning them.
Two pitbulls attacked three children in Atteridgeville, outside Pretoria, on Sunday.
The children are in a critical condition at the Kalafong Hospital.
The association’s Robert Nelson says that the pitbulls concerned may not have been properly bred by their owners.
He says those who have such dogs should undergo training to understand how to breed them to avoid causalities or fatal incidents.
“People should remove those dogs in order to avoid incidences like this happening.”
He says that owners should ensure that the dogs are enclosed in a demarcated area where they will not easily escape.
The police are now investigating the circumstances concerned, while the three children remain in a critical but stable condition at the Kalafong Hospital.
