Kildare County Council Does Not Keep Records On Dog Attacks: 1,500 Attacks Have Been Reported To Gardaí Nationally

It's estimated there is roughly 1 dog warden for every 3000 dogs in Ireland.

Kildare County Council does not keep a record of dog attacks, with local authorities accused of failing to recognise the importance of enforcing dog fines.

Wexford issued 70 fines, Cork issued 55 and Galway handed out 40 last year.

It's estimated there is roughly 1 dog warden for every 3000 dogs in Ireland.

1,500 dog attacks have been reported to Gardaí in the last two years.

4 counties have not issued any fines, while 3 handed out only 1 in that time.

Sinn Fein Senator Lynn Boylan says the level of enforcement is hit and miss.
