    Why can't dog on dog attacks be investigated when the attacking dog is on the street without collar and lead

    Why do you say that, Nanny71? Has someone told you this? If the dog is on the street without collar and lead an offence has already been committed - or was it a stray? This article looks helpful: The Law When a Dog Bites Another Dog | Law on the Web

    From my own experience of being on the receiving end, if you don't know where the owner lives (assuming there is an owner), the authorities can't follow it up. All you can do is report it so it's logged which might help to build up a picture of attacks by a dog in a particular area.
