Barbadian Sr Citizen Mauled to Death by Pit Bull Dogs in St Barnabas
Police are conducting investigations into the circumstances surrounding the unnatural death of Verona Lolita Gibson 74 years of Monroe Road, Haggatt Hall St. Michael, which occurred sometime around 5:30 am, on Saturday the 28th January 2017, at Monroe Road, Haggatt Hall St. Michael.
Damien McCollin 30 year, also a resident of Monroe Road, went to her assistance but was attacked by the pack of dogs receiving multiple injuries to his body. He was taken to the QEH by ambulance for medical attention.
The owner of the dogs is currently assisting police with their investigations.
I want to remind owners of dogs that they have a responsibility to ensure that their dogs are properly secured. Strict liability is outlined in the Dogs (Licensing and Control Act) Chapter 177. Section 12, subsection (1) clearly states that an owner of a dog shall not:
(a) Permit that dog to be in any public place unless it is kept on a lead or leash.
