A tragic incident occurred in a west London park when two American XL bully dogs allegedly attacked and killed a small chihuahua named Yoda.
The devastated owner, Gina Frost, took to social media to express her grief and called for justice in response to the untimely death of her beloved pet.
The incident has sparked outrage among local residents, and the owner of one of the American XL bully dogs involved in the attack has reportedly received threats.
The Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident and have urged witnesses to come forward with any information.
Devastating Loss and Plea for Justice
The heartbroken owner, Gina Frost, shared the distressing news of her chihuahua’s death on social media.
She emphasized the need to keep children and other dogs away from the American XL bully dogs and urged witnesses to report any encounters with them to the police.
The loss of her cherished pet has left Gina yearning for justice, haunted by the senseless manner in which Yoda’s life was taken away.
The local community shares her outrage and demands accountability.
Investigation and Public Safety Concerns
The Metropolitan Police have launched an investigation into the incident, which took place near the entrance to Crane Park in Twickenham.
They confirmed that the Chihuahua was attacked and killed by an American XL bully dog.
The owner of the dog, who was not present during the incident, has reportedly faced threats following the attack.
The police have appealed to witnesses and anyone with information to come forward and assist with their inquiries.
Controversy Surrounding American XL Bully Dogs
The incident has reignited the debate surrounding the American XL bully breed.
Earlier this month, senior Tory MP Sir John Hayes called for a ban on American XL bully dogs in the UK, citing a series of attacks involving the breed in recent years.
Sir John argued that the American XL bully, which shares similarities with the banned Pit Bull Terrier breed, should be prohibited due to its alleged propensity for aggression and danger.
Legislation and Safety Measures
Currently, there are four banned dog breeds in the UK, including the Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro.
However, the American XL bully breed itself is not subject to any legal restrictions, despite concerns raised by experts regarding their strength and potential risks.
In response to calls for action, a spokesperson from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) stated that measures are already in place to address dangerous dogs, including potential prison sentences and euthanasia for dogs deemed dangerously out of control.
