Father of 10-year-old boy mauled by dog ​​says ban on XL bullies ‘should be extended to other breeds too’

Nature

The father of a 10-year-old boy mauled by a dog while playing football outside his home has released footage of the attack to raise awareness of the danger posed by out-of-control dogs.

Mohammad Sami Raza could be seen on CCTV footage playing outside the family home in Bentley Drive, Walsall, when he was attacked by the dog – a Staffordshire bull terrier – at around 7.35pm on Wednesday.

Family members came from inside the home to try to help the boy, who was attacked for about two minutes before the dog fled.

Mohammad’s father, Gohar Siddique, also posted photos of his son in the hospital to raise awareness.



These incidents should not happen

It comes as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak pledged to ban America’s XL bully dogs by the end of the year, following a series of attacks in recent days.

Speaking on Friday, Mr Siddique said: “This has been terrible, this should have been avoided if the dog owner had taken responsibility.

“The police said they would take the dog and the owner would be arrested.

“The owner should take responsibility for these dogs and these incidents should not happen.

“(The American XL bully ban) should be extended to other breeds as well. I support banning any dog ​​that attacks a human being, this should not happen.

“It’s the owner’s fault, it’s the owner’s responsibility to protect (people) from these dogs.”

A woman in her 60s was arrested following the attack, West Midlands Police confirmed, and given a warning, while the animal should be destroyed.

The incident happened just days after an 11-year-old girl was seriously injured by an XL American bully in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, on Saturday, and two other men were also injured.

Then on Thursday a man was fatally attacked by two dogs, believed to be XL bullies, in Stonnall, Staffordshire.

The attack – for which a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter – prompted Mr Sunak to pledge to ban the race once it is defined.

Meanwhile, Gary Stevens, 54, pleaded guilty on Friday to being responsible for a dog that killed his own brother in Derby in April. He will be sentenced in November.

Mr Siddique, 36, said he did not know the breed of the dog which attacked his son, who was hospitalized due to his injuries, although this was confirmed by police.



She has since been released with caution and relinquished the dog to be humanely destroyed.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “We were called to Bentley Drive in Walsall on Wednesday September 13 to reports of a disturbance and that a child had been bitten by a dog.

“The 10-year-old was taken to hospital to be treated for bite marks on his arm.

“The dog was seized on the spot.

“We believe the dog managed to escape from its address without its owner knowing.

“On Thursday September 14, we arrested a woman in her sixties on suspicion of possessing a dangerously out of control dog causing injuries.

“She has since been released with caution and relinquished the dog to be humanely destroyed.”
