U.K. leader vows to ban American bully XL dogs after fatal attack

U.K. leader vows to ban American bully XL dogs after fatal attack

You can hear the screams as on the pavement just beyond the shop.
a girl is being attacked
by a dog.
She manages to get up.
but is clearly injured.
The dog then runs across the road
to a petrol station.
chasing a man who falls to the ground.
The dog then mauls him as people
on a bus watch in horror.
A man then tries to hit the dog with a spade.
but the attack
Continuous.
The dog caused serious injuries.
The girl.
Anna Poon.
was taken to hospital.
Now back home.
she told us what happened.
The dog was staring at me.
I got terrified and he jumped on my arm and he bit me.
I was
screaming and the dog was keep on staring on my arm.
Then someone grabbed him and when
he left my arm.
he went on my shoulder and he bit my shoulder.
The attack has prompted the Home Secretary to push for a ban on American Bully XL dogs.
calling them a clear and lethal danger.
Anna agrees and blames the owner too.
He should be in prison because he never did anything.
He just let the dog bite everyone.
The police are investigating and say the dog was a Bully XL Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Incidents involving Bully XLs are increasing.
They accounted for almost a quarter of dogs
seized in the West Midlands by the end of May this year.
up from just 3% in 2018.
More
than half of the fatal dog attacks in the UK since 2021 involved Bully XLs.
But a ban
could be hard to enforce as it’s not recognised as a specific breed by the Kennel Club.
Owners
argue it could also mean many innocent dogs are put down.
We know that genetics makes up less than 1% of the propensity of a dog to be aggressive.
Actually it’s environmental.
So what we see is happening is that the popularity of these
types of dogs is increasing.
They’re a more valuable commodity.
but with that comes irresponsible
breeding and irresponsible ownership.
This dog is now in secure kennels.
but the attack has added to the argument that these
dogs aren’t safe to be on the streets.
