TCDC looking for owner of dog that attacked man in Whitianga

TCDC looking for owner of dog that attacked man in Whitianga

Thames Coromandel District Council would like to talk to the owner of a dog that attacked a man at the Whitianga skateboard park at lunchtime on Saturday 14 June.

The man was visiting the Whitianga skateboard park with his partner and two small children on when he was bitten on the leg by a large tan dog.

The dog was with a European male in his twenties who admitted to the victim that the dog bites and then left the skateboard park before giving any details. He is thought to be a local resident who frequents the park.

The victim required medical attention for the bite.

TCDC's Compliance Officers wish to speak to the owner of the dog about the incident as it is of concern that this dog was at the skateboard park within reach of children and the owner was aware that the dog has been known to have aggressive behaviour.

If you have information that can help, please call 07 868 0200 and ask for one of the TCDC Compliance team members.

Information will be received in confidence.
