Dog incidents

If your enquiry relates to attacks on people, there is a memo of understanding between Leicestershire Police and ourselves that the Police will lead on these cases and should be contacted in the first instance on 0116 222 2222.

For road traffic collisions involving dogs or dogs worrying livestock in fields then please also contact the Police.

Dog on dog attacks are likely to be very distressing but unfortunately this is not something that we can help with.  It is a civil matter between the owners of the animals concerned.
