Horror in the park As Rottweiler Savages a Tennis Ball
Onlookers in a park situated in Waterford Park were today forced to watch helplessly as a Rottweiler Dog rushed after a tennis ball only to roll around in the grass (with the ball in its mouth) after grabbing it.
This attack on the ball which was thrown by the dog’s owner (using one of the plastic ball-pick-up things) serves as a stark reminder that there are certain dog breeds which cannot be trusted simply run around the park freely having a good time.
The same attack also served as further vindication for Councilor Alan Tobin’s resolution to have signs erected in all parks situated within his constituency warning locals of “restricted breeds”, something he openly shared with the public through his Facebook page after successfully having the signs put up.
As you would expect, Dog breeds such as the Rottweiler “responsible for savaging the tennis ball in Waterford” featured prominently on the list. What’s more, those who witnessed the adorable attack were in agreement that any Dog confident enough to chase after a ball and grab it using the mouth should always be kept on a leash round the clock.
One local is quoted saying “the manner in which that dog chased after the ball with its tongue hanging out, panting and finally rolling around after grabbing it, I swear you would think it is the devil himself”.
“As if that is not enough, it carried the ball all the way back to the owner and proceeded to lay right by his feet, anxiously waiting and looking forward to the next throw, a chance to run across the green once again and repeat the same attack on the ball if not worse. Savagery, there is no better way to describe it”.
According to other reports, a bichon Frise who has been constantly treated badly by the owner since birth was spotted lashing out and even bit a toddler in the same park though there are no further reports about that incident.
