Swan Killed by Unsecured Dog

Unfortunately a swan has died after being attacked by a dog not secured by a lead. You only have to walk around the parklands on any day to find dog owners not obeying the law by letting their dogs run around unsecured.

The wildlife including swans around LHM have suffered enough due to loss of habitat and declining food sources as a result of the last 20 years of declining water quality. The last thing the dwindling wildlife population needs is the the harassed by dogs not secured.

Could you please spread the word that it is NOT OK to let your dog run around LHM without a lead and that increased patrols by officers will result in a fine to the minority group of dog owners that continue to place wildlife at risk.
