Tougher laws on dog owners must be drawn out and effectively enforced following the dog attack which killed 74-year-old jogger Yip Sun Wah in Subang Jaya two days ago. Seeing as this was not the first case of a fatal dog attacks, the government should seriously consider stricter rules when it comes to issuing licenses on certain breed of dogs, especially those that are known to be vicious.
On Tuesday, bull-terrier ran out of its owners’ home through the rubbish compartment door which was not properly secured and attacked Yip while he was out jogging in the morning at Jalan SS19/5B. Yip died at the scene after the dog bit him on the neck and almost tore off his left ear in the 9:50am incident. Reports said the dog attacked the victim for almost four minutes before returning home.
