Appalling dog attack in Tilgate Park, Crawley
Dog left with ear half ripped off.
At around 12pm on Tuesday 16th of April an off-the -eash dog, reportedly a Dalmatian, was seen attacking another dog in Tilgate Park.
The owner of Ollie, the dog being attacked, had to intervene and physically drag the Dalmatian off.
According to the owner the lady in charge of the Dalmatian allegedly did nothing but shout its name.
She then apparently said:
‘I’m a professional dog walker, I know what I’m doing’ before walking off with the aggressive dog still off the leash.
Ollie was left with gushing blood from his ear which was half ripped off and his shaken owner rushed him to the vet for emergency treatment.
The police were notified but as there was no information on who the lady was, no further action could be taken.
A Facebook appeal for information was started by Tilgate Councillor Francis Guidera the following morning and someone has already come forward with information which may be very helpful and will be passed on to the police.
Ollie’s owners, as if the distress of this experience wasn’t enough, were left with a £1000 bill leaving them with a sizeable excess to pay for the treatment which is ongoing due to the severity of poor Ollie’s injury.
Cllr Guidera said:
“I am absolutely disgusted by this. We have a dog and I can only imagine how distressing this must have been for Ollie and for his owners. Dogs are treated as part of the family and responsible dog walkers are very welcome in Tilgate Park. Irresponsible dog walkers, however, are absolutely not. If someone cannot control a dog, why on earth would they let it off the leash in what is likely the most popular public park in Sussex?”
