Braintree: Mother's concerns after pet was bitten by dog off the lead
12:00pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in News
A mother whose dog was attacked by a German Shepherd said she feels let down by the police’s initial response.
Joanne Whalley, of The Waterings, Braintree, was walking her West Highland White Terrier in a park near to Braintree Railway Station with her two children when another dog attacked him last Monday, at about 4.45pm.
Miss Whalley said her 11-year-old son James was “hysterical” when pet Willis was bitten by the dog, which was off the lead.
She also feared for her daughter Alicia, 2, who was in her buggy at the time.
