Dog attack in Gospel Oak

After a shocking incident seriously injuring a toddler in Gospel Oak reported in the local papers, there will be calls for more powers against dangerous dogs.

The precise circumstances here are unclear but Camden recently proposed to increase the sentence levels for owners of dogs which have attacked humans or other animals.  We argued that the sentencing should reflect similar crimes such as ABH and GBH, so we suggested 5 years for injury to a person and 10 years for death.
