Sadly there has been a major dog issue in Ormeau for some time with multiple attacks in the past 6 months. Dogs run rampant, people are now too scared to walk their poochies. Our dogs were attacked while on leads and after crossing the road from the roaming dogs….we were told by GCCC it was our fault for not stopping our dogs biting back. Ummmmmm three unregistered dogs, previous issues with them, ran across the road and attacked our two dogs that were on leads and in control.
