    when not to look at your koi in the pond

    Post  anubisram on Mon Jun 15, 2009 1:52 pm

    ...simples
    not advisable when you are running a fever with bad chest infection!
    stooping over the pond took a coughing fit...went dizzy...grabbed the electric fence around the pond...lost balance and nearly went arse over tit into the pond

    Quite a savage attack for no reason -badly injured his hind leg - he is still in a state of shock. I had him in my arms at shoulder height and the ba***rds still tried to get him
    Police coming tomorrow night
    What makes me mad is the owner is a Paramedic - he never has them on a lead - I wonder how many times he has been called to incidents with dogs attacking kids? this all took place 20 yards from a childrens playground - the dogs were heading in that direction when they spotted Geoff

    It make you sick when they cant keep control of there dogs! Bad enough it attact the dog but as you say it could have been a child. They should have been muzzled.
