The President of the One Stapledon Association is speaking out on the increase in animal attacks occurring in the community.

Glenville Johnson told ZNS News, “persons were attacked, persons were walking during the morning and dogs would have been about and run up on them. Attacks consist of physical attacks but its also psychological.”

Johnson says that the association has reached out for assistance with the issue. “We’ve reached out to animal control, Ms. Jones and I’ve spoken with Director Price from Ministry of Agriculture and I’ve also spoken with Superintendent Minnis from this Grove Police Station. We’ve partnered to combat this problem.”

Johnson reminded pet owners to consider the other members of the community especially children.
