Leash dogs before leaving home

I REFER to your report, “Dogs attack two children” (The Star, Nov 25).

The authorities must go all out to punish the irresponsible owner for the mishap.

Every effort must be taken to try and rehabilitate the dogs and even have them re-homed if necessary, before anyone thinks of putting them down.

People who let their pets roam free outside their homes instead of keeping them on a leash are unwittingly inviting danger not only for their pets but liability also for themselves as pet owners.

And more often than not, it is children, the elderly or the disabled who become victims because of our neglect.

It is imperative that we make our society safe at all times for vulnerable people like these.

Dogs, let alone a pack of them, should never be allowed out of the houses of their owners without a leash.

Allowing pets outside unguided and unsupervised is too heavy a responsibility for the animals to handle.

They will be forced to make judgments for themselves like instinctively becoming territorial and protective - especially for canines that lack love from their human families and are chained up all the time.

Any pet that habitually chases motorcycles and other vehicles has a potentially serious problem that needs looking into.

Owners who are irresponsible or cruel to animals should give them up and never keep pets.
