Big rise in violent dog-on-dog attacks, say pet groups

A big increase in the number of violent dog-on-dog attacks, particularly in urban areas, has been noticed by pet charities.

They say responsible dog owners are being forced to walk their pets at night because of the fear of other dogs attacking them during the day.

Present laws banning certain types of dangerous dogs do not work, they add.

The Dogs Trust is backing a "deed not the breed" bill for England and Wales currently going through Parliament.

Keith Doyle reports.
