Nine-year-old mauled by pit bull in Kaikohe

A nine-year-old Northland boy is in hospital with serious injuries after a dog attack in Kaikohe last night.

The boy had his upper body mauled by a pit bull as he was walking down a shared right of way about 5pm, National Radio reported.

Animal control officers caught the dog and intend to prosecute the owner.

Far North District mayor Yvonne Sharp said there had been a number of attacks in the same part of Kaikohe and the council was looking at toughening its bylaws.

(What about dog education, and dog owners classes?... a dog license should come with having to sit a test. Of course, this would mean having more qualified dog trainers around the country. Hey, a whole new industry, sort of)
