    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.

    The dog that attacked Dudley was out on the street again this morning, minus collar and lead with the owners trying to catch him.
    There was absolutely no follow up from Dog warden last time I reported it.
    I have emailed about it again but don't expect any better outcome.

    Contact the dog warden and explain the dog is a threat and you don't like the dog not being on a lead. Its horrific when another dog attacks your own. :(
