Two dog owners and a vet are slamming the Christchurch City Council for its slow response to getting a dangerous dog off the streets.
Carroll Ann Kiri is the owner of a West Highland White Terrier (Westie) and a Pomeranian that were attacked in December by the dog.
It jumped the fence into her property, killing the Pomeranian and seriously injuring the Westie.
Kiri said she contacted the council. An animal control officer arrived a few hours later to take photos.
The dog was deemed to be dangerous and required to be securely fenced on its property.
Kiri said she was informed the same dog had attacked two Staffordshire Bull Terriers the same day.
