Dogs involved in Brandon attack impounded

Two large dogs that were involved in an attack on a young boy and two other people in Brandon this morning have been impounded by the Burdekin Shire Council.

Burdekin Shire Council Environment and Health Manager Beth Whitworth said Council had received three calls this morning regarding the dog attacks in Drysdale Street.

“Council was informed that a young boy had been attacked by dogs at about 8.30am and was receiving treatment at the Ayr Hospital for several puncture wounds and scratches,” she said.

“I believe two further people were also attacked by the same dogs, before Council employees were able to contain them.

“The dogs were not microchipped, so they have been impounded.”

Mrs Whitworth said the dogs would be held for three days and pictures of the dogs would be on Council’s website.

“The dogs will be destroyed if we cannot find their owners,” she said.

Anyone with information on the dogs can call Council on 4783 9800.
