Dog terror forces mum to keep child indoors

A Rotorua woman is scared to let her daughter play in her own backyard because of fears she will be attacked by wandering dogs in her street.

Michelle Klee lives on Collie Dr and said some of the neighbourhood dogs were scaring residents on the street.

Miss Klee had to put her cat down recently after it was attacked by a dog.

"The dog had come on to my property," she said. "I had to put my cat down because its injuries were so bad."
Rotorua District Council's animal control supervisor Kevin Coutts said the incident with Miss Klee's cat had been reported and staff were doing more patrols in the area.

"Unfortunately we didn't receive a description of the dog involved so we weren't able to take it further."

Mr Coutts said roaming dogs were an issue in Rotorua.

"It is something that pops up in different areas at different times."
