Couple’s many loose dogs attack schoolchildren

Dear Editor,

There is a house which has been on the government reserve for over twenty years. Though many notices have been sent to those people (names provided) they refuse to move. The land where they are located could accommodate approximately three families from Broad Street. These people have about two dozen street dogs that attack school children on a regular basis. When the children run and scream the man and his wife would start ‘busing’ the little children that they are interfering with the dogs, which is untrue. Myself and other parents walk that particular street twice every day and we always have to walk with a stick and still we’ve been attacked. I hope by highlighting this issue schoolchildren would be able to walk freely.

Yours faithfully,

(Name and address provided)
