Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What would you like to know about this please?
Just to clarify there was no bite? Any evidence of a bite?
Just because the child was bleeding doesnt mean it was from a bite.
If there was a bite there would be medical evidence such as puncture wounds and you would need to see this.
Without evidence clearly there can be no bite.
In short if there is no bite then no action can be taken. If mum said a chunk was taken out of him then there would be evidence.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Potentially you would be liable for compensation or they could report it to the Police. There could arguably be an element of contributory fault, but the law requires that you keep the dog under control, whether this means it has a muzzle in public.
But it would either be a civil or criminal matter.
Does that clarify? Alex
Can I clarify anything else for you? I would hope there was no bite and no evidence.
No, you dont want to initiate an investigation.........
Does that clarify?
