Dangerous dog

Reported via mobile in the Dog Related Incident category anonymously at 21:58, Monday 27 May 2024

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6026491.

About 11.30-12, I was watching our kids do their football training on Queensmead playground when I saw a large brown dog running around on its own for quite a few minutes. I didn’t know where the owner was and was worried for the kids. Thankfully it didn’t appear interested in the kids and ran to the far side of the park near the bowling club and started growling at 2 small white dogs. The owner pulled their little dogs away, but the big brown dog followed, still barking. The white dogs were on bright orange leads. They went towards the football hut and the brown dog stopped for a little while. When they got beyond the football hut the brown dog chased them again. Running around them, jumping, barking. Eventually, some minutes later a man walked over and got the brown dog and put it on a lead. It took him a few minutes to do it. They did a circuit of the park, this time on the lead and also with a different small white dog. The dark brown dog had Rottweiler looks, but wasn’t Black and Tan, it was more tan with a caramel coloured chest. The owner was about 6’3” tall with black hair, a black beard, athletic build and about 45 years old. When he walked past me, he had the dog on a dark brown slip rope lead.
