dog bite,anyone know for sure?

Mike I am beginning to realise that what I myself thought as a deterrent could in fact be just the opposite.

We have now three rescue dogs having recently had our german shepherd put to sleep through I'll health. We miss her so much  and have had to come to terms with not having our first dog around for much longer.

We never have put a.    " beware of the dog s "     sign  up.but have thought  since my friends episode with the law that we would be doing the right thing  plus it would be a deterant to the wrong sort especially living here with no neighbours next door as such.. 

It is also interesting the kicking out part, could you tell me ,? 

It's just curiosity this one : about 25 years ago I was attacked at work by a dog. I DID kick out at it   .my union was involved as I had to report the required  visit to the hospital 

When I was briefed on what to write I was advised by the union that I should keep quiet about kicking out at the the owner of the dog could have a cruelty claim against me.

But back to the case in question my friend has been asked why from the police why she has not had the five dogs destroyed..she explains she was taking advice from her solicitor. Who said not do anything apart from what she tells them untill further evidence comes forward from the police.but 3 of the dogs had nothing to do with the  incident.

The law  I think is too confusing .

You you have any views to add to this Mike?

Thank you Steve,everyone has helped tremendously  .our saluki is picking up slowly,I have  coaxed  and fed him by hand. He had some chicken and pasta .he had eaten a little more than the day before .

But today I cooked him some shell pasta in gravy then thickened it with arrowroot I mixed it with chunks of best steak  I found in the freezer. He is eating a little more each day .this morning he also had some cod in breadcrumbs which I ovan cooked

While we enjoyed  sausage and mash.       for dinner.

Yvie, I don't know if this will work for you if you should ever need it but pansie's  idea is part of it ,we hang the bird feeder from a unused washing line.we get plagued by squirrel s too .they get the food from the bird feeders,  leave droppings  but mainly they are greedy ,turns out we are feeding squirrels more than birds!

By hanging a tray from the bird feeder,this catches a lot but it has to be fairly deep with straight sides. It all so needs emptying quite often.but it does stop it going on the ground.

The idea of hanging it on a washing line  it's brilliant for birds but nothing else that you don't want  As it jiggles about. We got the idea from a nt woodland.

I have been checking trespass up on the web I found that on every issue of land this is what it says clearly that anyone entering  private land or property without owners invite it is an illegal act  of trespass ,it points out is illegal entry  .

However , should damage be caused by any person or persons it is thus an illegal entery with intent to cause damage  by act ?........ ( sorry can't remember exactly)though goes on to say It is a criminal act.

Thanks BizzieB will continue to check this.

Yviestevie please don't be offended. Everyone is entitled to there view and I appreciate everyone has different .   if I offended you then I am sorry , I don't know if you will see this , I hope you do .and if it's possible to pm you then I shall. gran

The dogs were kicked out at I have suggested that they focus on this too.

 As well as what Fairygirl has pointed towards. Why was she on someone else's land  I say she has treated this as a playground .I am just pleased she didn't venture in the next field where there Is cattle , where she could have been trampled to death .Then would it be my friends fault?

Thanks Mike Allen ,I appreciate you taking time to explains from your experience of what happens within the law side of these situations..

I copied your piece of info and have emailed my friend with it. 

The one thing which puzzles me is why the jogger should be on private land.and why she kicked out at the dog.I do see it as wrong.
