Attack report:

I was walking along Deveareaux Road when a brown/tan/cream dog rushed at me growling and tried to jump at me but I pushed it away and hit it with my umbrella. The dog kept trying to jump at me and I was quite distressed. The dog has been reported to Council before and also for attacking one of my dogs. I spoke to the owner about keeping the dog behind her gate but she seemed non-plussed about it and indicated that she already had council fines. I am sick of ringing the Council and putting in reports where fines of $215 dollars are given.
