Akita dogs must be kept under control says MP
Sir Alan urges residents to contact police over Akita court order breaches
Sir Alan Beith MP is urging people in Amble to contact the police if there are problems with Akita dogs in the town.
There is a court order in place which stipulates that two particular Akita dogs must not be unaccompanied in public, must be muzzled, must be leashed and must be wearing visible collars with identity tags.
Sir Alan said:
“I am aware of the presence of the Akita dogs in Amble and a number of people in the town have let me know of their concerns.
“I can understand why residents are concerned. These dogs must be kept under strict control in public and there is a court order in place covering those in Amble.
“I would urge residents to contact the non-emergency number 101 and report any breaches of the court order as a priority. All calls to 101 are treated in confidence.”
